Workers who become work-incapacitated may try to change employer or stay
with their current employer in an accommodated job. We study the effect of these
strategies on sick-listed workers’ employment durations. We use survey and register data of 809 workers. We simultaneously estimate the duration until returning to work and the duration of employment using the timing-of-event approach. We find that workplace accommodations increase employment durations with the current employer. We also find that workers returning to work with a new employer have significantly shorter employment durations than workers returning to work with the current employer (with or without accommodations).
