UReturn - Finding Your Way Back to Work

University of Minnesota Disability Services

UReturn, a division of the Disability Resource Center, is the office designated to serve all employees (including faculty and staff) with any disability or medical condition requiring accommodations or workstation adjustments. UReturn obtains and confidentially maintains medical documents, certifies eligibility for services, recommends workstation adjustments or reasonable accommodations, and develops plans for the provision of these accommodations and adjustments for employees with illness or injury. As a neutral party, Access Consultants assist 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 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 and/or maintain employment.
  • On-going contact with the University throughout employee’s recovery and return to work.

If you think you have a medical condition or disability that is affecting your job, please contact UReturn for a confidential consultation with one of our access consultants.
