Preventing work disability across Vermont and supporting the health of all working Vermonters.
Research shows that there is a brief window of opportunity to help an individual with a work-limiting injury or illness to remain in the workforce. Once that window closes, the likelihood of an individual remaining employed is low. When an illness or injury forces a worker to exit the labor force, the loss negatively affects the health and well-being of these workers, as well as their families, employers, community, and many levels of government.
RETAIN is a federally funded progam based on evidence that this loss is often preventable and – with timely, coordinated, and effective supports – many workers could return to or remain in their jobs.
