An Enhanced Disability Management Program (EDMP) is available for Health Science Professional members of the Professional Employees Association.
The EDMP is a holistic disability management program that works collaboratively with the employee, employer and union to ensure that employees return to work in a safe and timely manner. It is a required program for all regular employees who are part of the HSPBA bargaining association and have either taken time off with a work-related illness/injury (WCB) after one day or are off due to a non-work related illness or injury for five days or more.
The goals of the EDMP are to:
The EDMP is intended to assist regular full-time or regular part-time employees in accessing services which can help to address medical, workplace or personal issues that represent barriers to an employee’s ability to return to work on a regular basis. It is designed as a plan the employee can use from the time they step out of the workplace through the treatment, possibly LTD, GRTW and accommodation, if required. Referrals can come from a variety of sources, including central call-in systems, employees, unions, managers, WCB, or LTD carriers.
