RTW PlaceRite® – Alternative Return-To-Work Network
Workers’ compensation claims do not get better with time. The longer an injured employee is off work, the less likely he or she will recover from the injury. Most employers find it quite challenging to accommodate all injured employees with restrictions, so RTW, Inc. has developed a solution called RTW PlaceRite to assist with return-to-work challenges.
RTW PlaceRite® is a unique, safe and highly effective return-to-work solution designed to provide temporary transitional light duty work for injured employees with restrictions, in situations where the employer is unable to accommodate the injured employee. RTW PlaceRite® is a national network of not-for-profit organizations that act as an extension of the employer’s return-to-work program.
RTW PlaceRite® is designed to keep the injured employee active with the ultimate goals of shortening the disability duration and getting the injured employee back to their full-duty position, all while providing meaningful work and giving back to the community.

How to get started?
The process is very easy. Begin by clicking this link then complete the simple RTW PlaceRite Referral form.
Once you have submitted a referral, our team will work on identifying a not-for-profit organization that can accommodate the injured employee’s restrictions within the state-mandated criteria.
What happens next?
Once we’ve identified an appropriate return-to-work option we will provide and send the sample job offer letter to the employer or TPA to be forwarded to the injured employee. But that’s not all you receive, we will also provide time cards and driving directions from the injured employee’s home to the not-for-profit location.
RTW will also conduct an attendance call to the not-for-profit on the first day and subsequent follow-up calls every two weeks. Placements are identified for most injured employees within 1-7 business days of the referral being made. Additionally, we can add locations to our network based on the employer’s needs at no additional charge.
