The Return To Work Job Bank is meant to assist employers who may not have comprehensive job descriptions available for workers, and such information is needed for a medical determination made regarding a persons ability to perform certain job tasks. If a new loss is received, and the employer does not have a job description ready, you can use these generic descriptions to help identify or determine job duties and physical demands. Prompt identification of actual physical demands of a job can aid in an informed medical determination about not only compensability, but also in a worker's ability to return to work. These decisions can be central to making an impact on medical and indemnity spend.
The Return To Work (RTW) Portal houses generic job descriptions assembled by CNA's Vocational Case Managers using licensed proprietary software containing occupational data derived from the US Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. The CNA Vocational Case Management team currently has access to job descriptions on the more than 12,000 occupations.
