How do we protect ourselves from injury liability when a recovering worker returns?

11/16/2015

Q: “We have an employee who is going to be having hip replacement surgery in a few weeks. We have not received anything from her doctor with any kind of restrictions or accommodations that we need to make before her surgery. She came in today using a cane. We are concerned that she might fall. We have no problem making some minor accommodations for her, but I am concerned that if she falls it will then become a workers’ comp claim. What can we do to protect ourselves?” – Pattie, Indiana
