Work Reintegration and Accommodation Program

The Work Reintegration and Accommodation Program (WRAP) is dedicated to assisting UBCO staff/faculty while they are away from work on medical leave. WRAP also works with our staff/faculty members to assist them during periods of injury and/or illness.

What does this mean for Staff and Faculty?

  • If you are off sick, it is your responsibility to contact your head/supervisor or the designated administrative staff for your unit. You are also required to enter your sick time into the new Workday system.
  • If you are off work for 5 days or greater or if there are concerns earlier, you will be contacted by the a representative of  WRAP who will work with you and your head/supervisor as needed.
  • If you are at work but having difficulty in managing a medical condition, or unaware of what resources may be available to assist you, WRAP is here to support you.
  • All medical notes are managed by the WRAP representative who works in consultation with your head/supervisor.
  • It is your responsibility to provide medical information in support of your illness/injury related absence as requested by WRAP.
