We’re here to help

Work Connections is an integrated disability management program developed by the University of Michigan to help employees and supervisors when an employee experiences an injury or illness that prevents working. We work with other programs at the university to ensure that employees and supervisors have convenient and centralized access to a wide variety of resources and support.

The program will:

  • Provide confidentiality of medical information for employees
  • Provide assistance through an employee’s recovery
  • Facilitate appropriate and necessary communication among involved individuals and departments
  • Coordinate the services of nurses, therapists, physicians and other health care professionals
  • Provide return-to-work support (e.g., job analysis, vocational rehabilitation, ergonomic consultations)
  • Help facilitate a safe return-to-work
