Job modification and rehabilitation

Job modification and rehabilitation are individual measures in the physical, organisational and social work environment that aim to allow an employee with impaired ability to perform normal work, to continue to work or return to work. These measures are applied as preventive action to avoid illness and sick leave, and to help the employee return to work after sick leave. It is of importance that all employees know who is responsible of what in the process and what to do as an employee.
