L&I Pays Companies Back for Light Duty!

Have you heard that WTA Group Retro members have received over $130,000 in reimbursements from L&I? It's true!
L&I's Stay at Work Program helps companies offer light duty to injured workers by reimbursing some of the costs associated!
  • Wages: 50% of paid light duty wages up to 66 days or $10,000 (whichever comes first)
  • Equipment: Up to $2,500 in equipment expenses (could be the FULL cost of equipment, which remains the property of the employer)
They also have reimbursements available for clothing and training; think truck drivers needing office or shop attire.

Let's get creative! Companies have received reimbursement for:
  • Industrial paper shredders
  • Heated parkas
  • Golf carts
  • Computers/Laptops/Netbooks
  • Sit/Stand desk attachments
And, don't forget Group Retro members have access to 80 hours of computer-based light duty for FREE! (Non-members can purchase this light duty program for a daily fee.)

Let's get your injured worker back to work safely while tapping into these benefits! Call Krystle for more information!
