Workers' Compensation Safety Board of Nova Scotia

Return-to-Work Team


Creating a successful return-to-work program requires a team effort. Strong partnerships must be at the heart of any program, and each partner must have a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities. When all partners work together and share their knowledge and expertise, a return-to-work program will run smoothly and efficiently.

Return-to-work partners include:

  • Employers 
  • Workers 
  • WCB case worker(s) and case management team 
  • Relationship manager and WCB consultant 
  • Health care providers 
  • Union representatives (if applicable)

The following are some of the responsibilities for employers, workers, the WCB case worker and the health care providers.
