Racial and ethnic inequities in the return-to-work of workers following an injury or illness: Findings from a systematic review

Dr. Arif Jetha is a scientist at the Institute for Work & Health and an associate professor at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health. His research spans population health, systems science, and social policy to examine how the future of work affects vulnerable workers. He earned his PhD from University of Toronto and holds an MSc from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Dr. Faraz Vahid Shahidi is an associate scientist at the Institute for Work & Health and an assistant professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. A social epidemiologist by training, his research examines the role of social and economic conditions in shaping the health and safety of working people. He holds a PhD in public health sciences from the University of Toronto and an MPhil in social policy from the University of Oxford.

Research in the field of occupational health has consistently found evidence of racial inequities, with workers of colour facing more frequent, severe, and disabling injury and illness when compared to white workers. In this presentation, Dr. Arif Jetha and Dr. Faraz Vahid Shahidi describe findings from a recent systematic review of literature examining racial inequities in the return-to-work (RTW) process. They synthesize existing evidence which has focused on racial and ethnic inequities in the re-integration of injured or ill workers. They also discuss opportunities to address obstacles faced by workers of colour in RTW and provide recommendations for future research.
