Abstract:     
This article examines legal and management practices regarding injured workers in Québec who are seeking support for rehabilitation and return to work after an employment injury or illness. The article begins by reviewing key issues raised in rehabilitation literature with regard to factors that favour successful return to work after injury, including studies on early return to work. It then examines compatibility between Québec workers’ compensation legislation and its application by employers and the workers’ compensation authorities (CSST) with the key findings from the literature with regard to facilitators and obstacles to successful return to work. It concludes that while the legislation itself creates few obstacles for a successful return to work, current practices in its implementation, particularly by case managers and litigators, may diminish the chances of successful return to work for injured workers.
