We want to help you return to work so you can get back to your normal life and recover from your workplace injury/illness.
If you are not medically able to return to your date-of-accident employer and a job change is required, we will continue to help you. Your case manager will talk to you about training and skills development opportunities such as a training-on-the-job program or employment services. Your needs are based on the severity of your injury and the impact your injury/illness has had on your ability to return to your date-of-accident level of work and income.
The Training-on-the-Job (TOJ) program is designed to help you get a new job when you cannot return to your pre-accident job. If you find a job that requires onsite training, we will share the costs of training for the new position with your new employer.
While in the TOJ program, you receive your full salary and we reimburse the employer a percentage of the salary paid while you learn the new position.
We can arrange employment services to help you develop the skills you need to return to work. These services range from:
- skill building (e.g. job search skills development, resume writing, etc.)
- identifying skills and job options (e.g. career counselling, return-to-work skills profile)
- upgrading your education (e.g. academic assessment, short-term or long-term academic program)
Remember we are here to help you. Our first focus is to help you return to your employer. Additional employment services will depend on how serious your injury/illness is as well as the impact of it on your ability to return to your job and income.
Your case manager will be happy to answer any questions you have about employment services you may be eligible for.
