The Work & Well way to save on costs
Work & Well’s medical professionals perform a thorough medical review of each medical leave case. We work closely with your employees’ healthcare providers and human resource team to monitor recovery. We ensure that your employee is able to safely return to work as soon as possible for full duty, at a reduced schedule or with temporary accommodations.
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Although FMLA provides employees with important benefits, FMLA continues to place an administrative, legal and costly burden on employers. By thoroughly reviewing each case, clarifying medical certifications and coordinating second and third opinions, Work & Well has reduced the number of lost workdays by 20 – 40% within one year of service for our clients. This results in significant reductions in overtime and temporary-help expenses. Studies show that an unplanned absence reduces productivity by 22%*. By getting employees back to work safely and quickly, our clients see immediate productivity improvement.*Mercer Study -2010
