Return to work for NSW employers 

icare understands workers compensation can be complex. As an employer you have an obligation to help injured workers recover at work or return to suitable employment as soon as their injury allows.

To help navigate the return to work process, we've created resources to assist employers with understanding their legal obligations and improve return to work outcomes for their injured workers.

Return to work programs

All employers in NSW are required to have a return to work program in place. Your return to work obligations differ depending on whether you’re a category 1 or category 2 employer. Find out what this means for you below.
