Labor & Industries has a Preferred Worker Program with financial incentives and premium relief for employers willing to take back valued employees with medical restrictions resulting from an accident at work.
To qualify, an employer must provide a medically-approved job. In return, employers can collect 50 percent of the employee’s based wages for up to 66 days or $10,000 within a consecutive 24-month period.
Returning an injured worker to a job rebuilds self-esteem and financial stability. The Preferred Worker Program also allows workers to retain valued employees regardless of whether their physical capabilities have changed.
