This could increase the willingness of employers to provide additional accommodation and rehabilitation by linking the cost of disability payment to firms. It could also create growth in the private insurance market and greater case management of workers following the onset of a work limiting impairment and hence greater return to work. However, it could result in substantial added costs to the system.
