The Prince George’s County Public School (PGCPS) system has developed a Transition-to-Work program that was created to return employees to employment at the earliest date following any injury or illness. This program is applicable to all eligible employees. Transitional work is a progressive and individualized program that reduces time lost from work, decreases the injured worker disability experience, maintains the employer-employee work experience, and improves employee morale. It represents an opportunity to protect and maintain the employability of the workers with restrictions, while reducing the employer/employee financial liability associated with work restrictions.
In order to have a successful Transition-to-Work program, we need the support of all supervisors for each of our locations (i.e., schools, administrative buildings, etc.). Supervisors are encouraged to create one light duty position to assist with the placement of an employee who may have temporary restrictions and need accommodations for up to, but not limited to, 90 days. The duration will be determined by the Risk Management and Workers’ Compensation Office.
Supervisors may request for assistance through the Transition-to-Work Program by completing and submitting the Transition-to-Work(TTW) Program Light Duty Availability Form.
To file a Workers' Compensation Claim, you may contact the Injured Employee Hotline at 1-800-774-2447. Call this number to report your workers' compensation claim prior to seeking medical attention for all work-related non-life-threatening injuries.
