Managing the Employee on Transitional Duty for Assisted Living


Many communities provide modified or restricted duties to staff members who are partially disabled following a work-related injury or illness. These modified or restricted duties help to quickly and safety transition injured staff members back into the work place until they are able to resume full duty tasks. This practice is referred to as transitional duty. It is important to understand how a transitional duty program quickly and safely returns injured staff members to the work place. You must also understand your role in your community's transitional duty program.
