a. The worker requests re-employment;
b. You are hiring;
c. The treating doctor certifies the worker is fit to perform the pre-injury job or a modified duty job without significant risk of re-injury;
d. The job is available.
If you are hiring, you shall also offer to rehire the worker who applies for any job paying less than the pre-injury job, provided the worker is qualified for the job and the doctor certifies that the worker is fit to perform the job offered without significant risk of re-injury. Employers must treat injured workers in good faith and not punish them or terminate them solely because they were injured and thereafter seek workers’ compensation benefits.
