When the unexpected happens and an employee is unable to work due to an injury or extended illness, they need the support of their employer and may need to access their Short Term Disability (STD) benefit plan.
At Windley Ely our team of professionals will assess the medical evidence and review job demands in order to provide validation of medical absences, direction on the anticipated duration of the absence, and guidance regarding opportunities for early and safe return to work.Contact Us Today
We will design a customized return to work plan for each employee based on their medical condition and capabilities in coordination with you, the employer, to ensure a successful early and safe return to work. The objective is to make sure that employees who have the ability to be productive in some capacity are at work through modified duties or hours for a short period of time prior to returning to their pre-disability duties and schedule.
In those instances where an employee has a severe or progressive condition, which prevents them from returning to work prior to the end of the STD period, Windley Ely provides assistance in transitioning the file to the Long Term Disability (LTD) provider, effectively minimizing any delays in benefit payments, while providing support to the employee and the HR team during the transition.Connect with Our Experts
