Return-to-Work Program Offers Payments for Injured Workers

The California DIR has launched the Return-to-Work Supplement Program for injured workers.

The California Department of Industrial Relations has launched the Return-to-Work Supplement Program for injured workers. The fund is considered an important component of the workers' compensation reforms in Senate Bill 863, and it will quickly get an additional $5,000 to each eligible injured worker who has a disproportionate loss of earnings.

"This program is another example of the benefits that SB 863 brought about for injured workers," said DIR Director Christine Baker. "Many workers face economic hardship when they suffer disabling work injuries and this supplement will help them regain some of those lost earnings."

DIR has introduced an online portal as well as kiosks that connect to the portal in its Division of Workers' Compensation offices across the state.
