9. Stay at Work/Return to Work (SAW/RTW)

Millions of workers in the United States leave the workforce each year after experiencing an injury or an illness. This can result in detrimental outcomes to displaced employees, employers, and the economy. Stay at Work/Return to Work (SAW/ RTW) strategies provide customized intervention and support to help workers stay connected to the workforce and reduce their need for long-term Federal disability benefits. This lecture will provide an overview of national SAW/RTW policy and efforts here in KY.
