Return to Work grants help Washington state industries bring to life innovative ideas that will get injured employees back on the job sooner and reduce long-term disability.

“Getting injured employees back to work as soon as medically possible can save a business thousands of dollars,” said Jellison. “A quick return to work reduces long-term disability, keeps premium costs down for employers, lets an employer retain valuable employees, and reduces cost for the workers’ comp system.”
