Each year, millions of workers in the United States lose their jobs or leave the workforce after their ability to work has been disrupted by a medical condition. Keeping these workers in the labor force could help them maintain their standard of living; stay productive; and avoid dependency on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other federal programs.
As part of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative - funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy - three expert-led policy workgroups have developed actionable policy recommendations to help workers keep their jobs if they experience a potentially career-ending medical condition. At this forum, the leaders of each workgroup will share their insights and address the central question: How can we reduce the number of workers who eventually lose their jobs due to a medical condition?
