Work-related injury/illnesses that prevent an employee from working his/her regular duty are the costliest to both the injured worker and our organization.
The Department of Administrative Services established a Workers’ Compensation selective duty program in 1989 for state employees who are members of either the NP6 (para-professional) or the P1 (professional) health care bargaining units. It is a provision of the labor contracts originally negotiated between the New England Health Care Employee’s Union, District 1199 and the State, and has been in effect since.
