Joint negotiation on employee’s return to work solutions

Joint negotiation on employee’s return to work solutions

This study investigates the ways in which employees’ return to work is supported through a negotiation between the employee, supervisor and representative of occupational health services. The study analyses how the negotiating parties participate in the decision-making process and the subjects of their conversation. 

The study also offers a way in which to understand the entire negotiation process and describes the participants’ experiences of the negotiation. The study results can be utilized in the training of occupational health services' professionals and in developing the operations of organisations performing the negotiation between employee, supervisor and representative of occupational health services.

The study is conducted in co-operation between the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and the University of Tampere during the period 1.8.2015 – 31.12.2018. The study has been funded by The Finnish Work Environment Fund.
