Early Intervention and Return to Work eSeries

Last updated: October 26, 2022

The Early Intervention and Return to Work eSeries modules are designed for BC Public Service supervisors.

These modules cover a range of topics related to supporting employees who have an illness or injury to stay at work or return to work as soon as possible after a period of illness or injury. The purpose of these modules is to provide information to help you manage situations on your own, or direct you to specialists that can support both you and your employee with early intervention and return to work planning.

Supervisors will learn about:

  • Sick leave
  • The Managing Employee Health Issues at Work program
  • Doctor's Certificate forms
  • Short Term Illness and Injury Plan (STIIP) and the supervisor's role
  • Long Term Disability (LTD) and the supervisor's role
  • Return to work

There are 8 modules in total, divided into 3 categories:

  • At work
  • Off work
  • Return-to-work

You're encouraged to work through the entire series, but can link to them individually.
