Return to Work Clearance (RTW Clearance Criteria)
Employee Health Services (EHS) is now accepting physician clearances (i.e. doctor’s notes), meaning, depending on the circumstance, employees will not have to be cleared by EHS if they are returning to work after an extended leave. To help collect physician clearance information, a RTW email inbox is now available,
JHS-ReturnToWork@jhsmiami.org. Staff members can email a physician clearance form rather than having to wait in line when dropping it off in person.
