Understanding Disability in the Workplace: LTD, STD, Workers' Compensation and Return to Work

September 23

Find out what regulations are impacting your illness and injury programs and how to remain compliant.

This topic will provide you with a thorough analysis and discussion in order to understand the term disability under various states’ workers’ compensation statutes. You will also be provided with an in-depth learning experience covering the various available benefits including Long-Term Disability (LTD) and Short-Term Disability (STD) and the interplay with receipt of workers’ compensation benefits. This information will present specific strategies to assess return-to-work motivation, risks and factors which can impact a prolonged period of disability and create barriers which influence return-to-work outcomes. Finally, the material will address several COVID-19 issues impacting the return-to-work situation for an injured worker.

  • You will be able to recognize the impacts of long-term disability (LTD) and short-term disability (STD) benefits toward achieving case closure.
  • You will be able to identify some of the common return-to-work pitfalls to avoid.
