SAW/RTW Webinar: How Can We Help Workers Keep Their Jobs After Injury, Illness?

Feb 24, 2016 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

This policy webinar was hosted by the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative. We convened state and local leaders who want to help more workers keep their jobs after they develop a career-threatening medical condition.

Our panel of speakers discussed and requested your feedback on the following topics:

  • The reasons behind avoidable work disability and job loss
  • The benefits of stay-at-work/return-to-work policies for state and local governments and their constituents
  • State and local policies that could help workers keep their jobs after an injury or illness

The speakers’ panel featured:

  • Yonatan Ben-Shalom, project director of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Policy Collaborative (moderator)
  • Jennifer Christian, president and chief medical officer of Webility Corporation
  • David Stapleton, director of Mathematica Policy Research’s Center for Studying Disability Policy
