New Mexico Workers' Compensation Administration - Early Return to Work Initiative


Calling all employers to be recognized as a Return-to-Work Champion by the State of New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Administration.

In this job seeker market, you can establish yourself as a family-friendly business while retaining your recovering workers. As the RTW Specialist for the WCA, I will be doing a monthly column highlighting RTW Best Practices.

Best Practice # 1 – Have a RTW overseer. Designate one person or even better, a team of a few core people to oversee your workers’ compensation program. Once you do that, give them the RTW checklist found below.

We have found this to be our most popular tool which is available for download on our WCA RTW Tool Kit website as there are items here no one may have thought of.

For more help and/or to participate in our free consult program,
