Employers understand the importance of absence management and its impact on a company’s profit. The NOVA OHS Medical providers, as a component of the employers’ overall strategy, contribute to the management of worker absence by communicating with workers’ that are off work and assuring not only the necessity of the absence but a safe and successful return-to-work. Workers’ personal medical or family medical leaves are evaluated by the NOVA Provider relative to the company’s policy and laws such as FMLA and the Federal Disability Care Act. Workers’ time off work is monitored, and restricted work or permanent disability is evaluated as appropriate. NOVA OHS recognizes the value of integrating disability management with worker health and wellness initiatives aligned with productivity goals and assists employers to this end.
