Problems with your Employer

Occasionally industrial and workplace issues may prove to be a major barrier to an injured worker returning to full or near full capacity in his or her pre-injury job.

Some of the specific issues that can occur include:

  • An employer being reluctant to accept an injury is work related (despite liability being partially or fully accepted by the insurer) and is therefore also reluctant to support the restrictions made on the medical certificate.
  • An employer not being aware or being unwilling to accept their obligations to provide suitable duties for an injured worker
  • An employer agreeing to provide but then not accommodating the restrictions or hours on the medial certificate.
  • Lack of management and co-worker support - an attitude that the injured worker is a malingerer, weak or not pulling their weight and therefore “dragging the chain”.
  • Subsequent problems with the injured worker being fearful of returning to work
