What is light duty work?
When employees are injured on the job, they may be unable to return to their normal job function for a period of time. In some cases, employees can request light duty.
Under light duty, employees may perform a limited job function in the following ways:
- Work in a modified workspace
- Take on tasks that are less demanding
- Work less hours than usual
