Short-Term Disability Adjudication
Canadian employers providing salary continuance or EI Wage Top-up Program for Short-Term Disability (STD) are looking for alternative resources to improve productivity and reduce lost time. Managing an STD program is a balancing act for human resources. Maintaining medical privacy, coordinating successful return to work, and containing costs is challenging and time consuming.
