Studies reveal crucial role of co-workers in return-to-work process
Co-workers can play an important role after a work-related injury. They can provide details about the circumstances of an accident, offer emotional support to the injured worker and help with job tasks upon a co-worker's return to work (RTW). Working with an injured co-worker, however, can also strain work relationships and increase workload. The purpose of this study was to determine the role that co-workers play after a work-related injury and during the RTW process in the unionized, electrical construction sector. Methods We conducted two focus groups with injured electricians and union...
Work stress and work ability: cross-sectional findings from the German sociomedical panel of employees
Maintenance of work ability and restoration of reduced work ability by prevention and rehabilitation are major aims of disability management. To achieve these aims, decision-makers and health care providers need evidence of the determinants of restricted work ability. The aim of this article was to analyse the cross-sectional association between work stress and work ability in a population drawn from a random sample of employees. A total of 1463 working men and women aged 30-59 years from the baseline survey of the German SPE were included in the analyses. Work stress was defined in terms of the...

Returns to Job Mobility: The Role of Observed and Unobserved Factors
We investigate the returns to promotions and separations from firms using Portuguese linked employer-employee data. More than 90% of the total variation in wages can be explained by observed and unobserved characteristics of workers and firms. Taken together, worker and firm unobserved effects explain more than half of the variation of wages for all types of job mobility. Our results suggest that promoted workers are high wage workers in high wage firms. Movers are inherently lower wage workers, in lower wage firms. However, on average, workers that find a new job within one year enter firms that...
