The Return to Work Program for

Workers’ Compensation Injuries and Illnesses

Getting back to work is an important step in recovering from a work-related injury or illness and means returning to a normal pace in life.  Research shows that returning to work has important health and wellbeing benefits.  An early return to work and activity helps prevent long term disability and improves the likelihood of you continuing to improve and returning to full work duties.  RESIG’s Return to Work Program can assist you in returning to work quickly and safely after a work related injury/illness.  Although you may not be able to perform your regular full duties, often you can still perform alternative productive work while recovering fully from your injury.  This process benefits everyone involved.  Workers benefit by a more rapid and complete recovery.  Employers benefit by a reduction in the length of time the employee is away from work and Medical Providers benefit by having another tool to utilize in aiding employees with their recovery.

RESIG’s Job Template Project

In today’s climate, having up to date and valid job descriptions are a must.   RESIG recognized this need and hired an independent company, DMG, to perform several onsite job analyses throughout three different sized Districts (small, medium and large).  Interviewers met with managers, supervisors and employees.  They paid special attention to essential job functions and the physical/mental requirements of the perspective jobs.  The outcome produced a bank of Job Templates that can now be accessed and utilized by our member districts.  There are many benefits to having updated and valid job descriptions such as; legal compliance, hiring/interviewing needs, and providing clear employee expectations.  They can also be useful for Supervisors, Medical Providers, and a host of others.   

RESIG would like to thank the following Districts for their participation in The Job Template Project:  

Santa Rosa City Schools/Cindy Brennan

Forestville USD/Cristy Simmons

Piner Olivet USD/Becky Leffew

Without your participation this project would not have been possible.
