If you are released with work restrictions or limitations your District Claims Contact will work with your Site Supervisor and NBSIA’s Return-to-Work Coordinator to determine whether to temporarily modify your regular job duties (modified work assignment) OR place you temporarily in a bridge assignment, based on the medical restrictions from the physician.
If your regular site is unable to temporarily accommodate you in either the modified work assignment or a bridge assignment, your District Claims Contact will determine if another school site can accommodate you in a temporary work assignment.
If a bridge assignment has been designated, the District Claims Contact and NBSIA’s Return-to-Work Coordinator will review the work assignment with you.

If the District is unable to provide you with a temporary work assignment, you will receive temporary total disability benefits through workers’ compensation while you are temporarily unable to work.
