When is the DN68 (Initial Return to Work Date) required?

The Initial Return to Work Date should always be provided on a First Report of Injury (FROI), even if the injured worker returned to work on the same day. The only instances in which an Initial Return to Work Date would not be provided is if the injured worker has not returned to work, or if it is unknown if they have returned to work. Once the Initial Return to Work Date is known, a FROI 02 change report needs to be sent with that Initial Return to Work Date in order to update the First Report of Injury (FROI).
