APPROVAL / DISAPPROVAL (For DWC Use Only) Approved Disapproved Signature Printed Name Date WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THIS PROGRAM? Employers in Texas may be eligible for reimbursement or an advance under the Return-to-Work Reimbursement Program for the cost of providing workplace modifications to facilitate an injured employee's return to modified or alternative work following an injury. Complete details regarding the Return-to-Work Reimbursement Program may be found at the following website: http://www.tdi.texas.gov/wc/rtw/index.html An employer in Texas is eligible to apply for reimbursement or an advance under the Return-to-Work Reimbursement Program if: (a) the employer employs at least two but not more than 50 employees on each business day of the preceding calendar year; (b) the employer's workers' compensation insurance is currently in effect and was in effect on the date of the injury; and (c) the employer is not an agency of the State of Texas or a political subdivision of the state. It is a violation of the Workers' Compensation Act for an employer to willfully apply for or receive reimbursement or an advance under the Return-to-Work Reimbursement Program knowing that the employer is not eligible. It is also a violation for an employer to use a reimbursement or an advance for purposes other than those stated in the employer's application. IS ANY OF THE REQUESTED INFORMATION OPTIONAL?
