Sweden regarding the employers responibility for rehabilitation. A juridical method has been

used for in this study.

It is mainly the social insurance office, the employer and the employee who have the

responsibilities for the process of the rehabilitation. The social insurance offices foremost

function is to coordinate and supervise the efforts, which are needed for the rehabilitation.

The employers shall take actions which are needed for an effective rehabilitation, have

responsibility for the systematic work environment management and give the social insurance

office the information that is needed. The employees responsibility is to participate in the

planning of the rehabilitation and in the actual rehabilitation as good as possible.

There are many factors which affect the rehabilitation for those who due to illness or injury

are unable to work. It can for example be the employees own participation in the

rehabilitation, the systematic work environment management and the size of the company.

There are differences between Sweden and Denmark regarding the employers responsibility

for the rehabilitation. The most important difference is that the employer in Denmark does not

have any responsibilities for the rehabilitation. There is also a difference between the

countries in the employment security.
