Preparing colleagues for your worker's return
Feeling nervous or worried about returning to work is normal for a worker who has been off work for a period of time.
Appropriate encouragement and support for your worker when they are returning and/or recovering at work is important.
It is also important to make sure all staff dealing with your worker:
- know the date their colleague is coming back to work
- have a copy of the recover at work plan (where appropriate)
- are aware of their important role in supporting the worker through the process.
