This accredited to their high 1.60 mod and not a program to incentive workers to return back to work. The longer that it takes for workers to return, the more it will cost PYB in the future when their WC premium skyrockets.

It is proven that healthier employees will result more production, less injuries and more days at work.
We then recommend implementing a “light duty” work program to incentive workers to come back to work. This program will pay them their normal salary in order to return to work. This program can contain clerical and “mail room” duties until the individual can bounce back to normal duties. This will push the injured to come back immediately and lower WC payouts. This will reduce PYB’s experience rating in the future.
