 UReturn-Employee Services

UReturn - Finding Your Way Back to Work


University of Minnesota Disability Services


UReturn is an integrated disability services program designed to assist and support all University faculty and staff who experience an illness or injury, both work-related or non work-related.

UReturn is the designated office to serve all employees (including faculty and staff) with any disability or medical condition requiring accommodations or adjustments. UReturn obtains and confidentially maintains medical documents, certifies eligibility for services, recommends adjustments or reasonable accommodations, and develops plans for the provision of these for employees with illness or injury. As a neutral party, a UReturn specialist assists employees and their supervisors in implementing appropriate accommodations/adjustments.

UReturn provides:

  • Trained professionals who are available to help employees return to work quickly and safely.
  • Coordination of the details of an employee's successful return to work.
  • Support, such as job analysis, ergonomic consultation, and if appropriate, accommodations.
  • Confidentiality, while working with medical providers to identify options to return to work.
  • On-going contact with the University through recovery and return to work.

UReturn work with employees and supervisors to insure that medical conditions--both occupational and non-occupational--are evaluated so that employees can return to work quickly and safely.

If you think you have a medical condition or disability that is affecting your job, please contact UReturn for a confidential consultation.
