WP-2017-05: A Study on Job Retention and Re-Employment of Persons with Work-Related Disabilities (PWRD) in Select Regions in the Philippines

The transition of workers with permanent and temporary disability from absence to job retention or re-employment is affected by a number of factors. Several models indicate that return to work is usually associated with determinants other than physical and medical aspects of work contingencies. These models, however, were benchmarked based on the experiences of western countries. Hence, this study aims to explore the factors affecting the return to work of injured or ill employees with special consideration of the unique characteristics of the Philippines. The study made use of interviews and surveys with persons with work-related disabilities (PWRDs) in selected regions in the Philippines. It is worth noting, however, that the study may not provide an exhaustive list of all factors related to return to work. The descriptive analysis of the study only provides a snapshot of the return to work experiences of the respondents.
