Recent legislative changes in Australia parallel those of other nations and require employers to take increased responsibility for the return to work of injured employees.  In this context, work disability research has found co-worker support to be important to work reintegration success. This plenary provides insights into the experience of co-workers who have worked alongside returning injured workers. It is based on a qualitative pilot study that was conducted in Toronto in 2011.
