TRANSITIONAL RETURN TO WORK PROGRAM
CCSD has developed a formal Transitional Return to Work Program to enhance recovery, comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, help minimize workers compensation costs, and to provide a service to employees who are injured or suffer from an occupational disease in the course and scope of their employment with CCSD. As a part of the Focus 2024 five-year strategic plan, our objective is to reduce the number of worker’s compensation claims that have five or more days away from work after an injury to no more than 15 percent of all claims.
Employees will be placed in temporary modified duty positions, when feasible, during recovery from an injury or occupational disease that precludes them from performing their normal job tasks. In the event a treating physician issues permanent return to work restrictions that prevent an employee from returning to their pre-injury position, the District will make every effort to place the employee in an alternative vacant position that they are qualified to perform and that matches their physical limitations.
