Days Away Cases

 

If the case involves Days Away from Work, choose ‘Yes’ and then identify the ‘Date Out?’. This is the first day that the employee misses work as a result of the injury.

 

The application will then begin to count the number of days away until such time as the employee is released back to work.

 

Enter a date in the ‘Date Released Back to Work?’ field when the employee returns to work.

 

Restricted Duty (or Job Transfer) Cases

 

If the case involves Restricted Duty or Job Transfer, choose ‘Yes’ and then identify the ‘Start Date of Light Duty?’. This is the first day that the employee has one or more restrictions preventing the employee from performing at least one regular duty of the employee’s job.

 

The application will then begin to count the number of days of restricted duty until the employee has returned to full duty. 

Enter a date in the ‘Date Returned Full Duty?’ field when the employee returns to full duty.

 

Worker Status

 

On the Incidents Tab, where all incidents are listed, there is a column named ‘Status.’ A worker's status will be displayed, and the number of days away from work and/or the number of days of restricted duty will be displayed. The number of days will increase by one each day until a date has been entered, identifying that the employee has returned to work (either on full duty or restricted duty).
