Q
If an employee has an injury that is not work related, do we have to put together a return to work plan to ensure they do not injure themselves further at work?

 

A
There are obligations under discrimination legislation to make reasonable adjustments to allow employees to return to work safely and with regard to health and safety legislation so that employees can perform their duties safely and without risk to health.

However, the return to work plan requirements are specific to workers’ compensation legislation and do not need to be adhered to for non-work related injuries.
