When employees get back to work after a long absence, be that an injury, prolonged illness, pregnancy, or parental leave, HR managers and executives like to use a form to help facilitate both sides' resumption to work. This back to work form is used to collect information about the employee. During their return interview, employees fill out the form together with their supervisor and outline how they can be reintegrated into the company as seamlessly as possible.
The back to work form can also be designed as a checklist. In this way, supervisors can first request all important information before starting to create a reintegration plan.

1. Before the Return to Work Interview
2. During the Return to Work Interview
3. After the Return to Work Interview
