RE-INTEGRATION TRACK 3 / WGA
If no suitable position has been found for the employee after two years of work disability, a WIA examination (Work and Income according to Labour Capacity) will follow. Employees who still have useable capabilities according to this examination, may be eligible for a WGA benefit (WGA; Return to work scheme for partially or temporarily disabled persons). During this benefit period, continuous action must be taken on current reintegration possibilities. This is the reintegration track 3 process.
Individual risk carrier and WGA
As an employer, are you an individual risk bearer for the WGA? If that case you are responsible for the reintegration of an employee who falls under the WGA scheme for up to a period of 10 years and for paying the WGA benefit. This can result in considerable costs. We therefore advice you to support your employee’s reintegration process as long as there are employment opportunities, to limit the costs. Our expert reintegration coaches are very experienced in guiding and intrinsically motivating partially disabled employees.
As an employer, have you included reintegration track 3 in your insurance? Then the UWV or the insurer will take over the responsibility for the reintegration of the employee. We have been working closely with UWV for a long time now for the guidance of benefit recipients under the WGA and for the guidance of people under the Sickness Benefit Act.
