When employees get back to work after an injury, prolonged illness, pregnancy or parental leave, HR managers and executives like to use a form as a tool to 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 together how the employee 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.

Some employers have long since established such forms and return interviews as a prerequisite for resumption to work in their companies - mainly because both sides benefit from them.
At a return to work interview, an employee and his or her supervisor meet to discuss the employee's resumption to work after his or her absence.

In all phases, managers should consider the following:
1. Before the return to work interview
2. During the return to work interview
3. After the return to work interview
