Promoting Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policies: New Recommendations to Help Workers Who Experience Illness or Injury

Thi Policy Forum and Live Webinar is scheduled for Thursday, October 22, 2015 from 11:45 a.m.–1:30 p.m. EST, and sponsored by the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative and the Center for Studying Disability Policy at Mathematical Policy Research. Each year, millions of workers in the United States lose their jobs or leave the workforce after their ability to work has been disrupted by a medical condition. Keeping these workers in the labor force could help them maintain their standard of living; stay productive; and avoid dependency on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other federal programs. As part of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative—funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy—three expert-led policy workgroups have developed actionable policy recommendations to help workers keep their jobs if they experience a potentially career-ending medical condition. At this forum, the leaders of each workgroup will share their insights and address the central question: How can we reduce the number of workers who eventually lose their jobs due to a medical condition? To register for the Policy Forum or Live Webinar, please click on View Page Now or go to: http://www.mathematica-mpr.com/events/csdp-forum-october-2015-promoting-stay-at-work?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CSDP%20Forum%20Reminder%2010%2022%2015%20(2)&utm_content=&spMailingID=12659472&spUserID=Njc2ODkyNzQ1MTcS1&spJobID=640873925&spReportId=NjQwODczOTI1S0
