Abstract
The purpose of this essay was to examine the employers rehabilitation responsibility in relation to employees that suffer from physical or psychological illness, from a labour law perspective, to gain an understanding whether the rehabilitation responsibility is interpreted in different ways. Therefore, the research question was “how is the employers rehabilitation responsibility assessed and its boundaries in relation to physical and psychological illness?”. In order to examine this question, the legal dogmatic method was chosen. The results indicated that several different factors affect the assessment of the employers rehabilitation responsibility and its boundaries. A legal case examination identified the factors rehabilitation and... (More)

Therefore, the research question was “how is the employers rehabilitation responsibility assessed and its boundaries in relation to physical and psychological illness?”. In order to examine this question, the legal dogmatic method was chosen. The results indicated that several different factors affect the assessment of the employers rehabilitation responsibility and its boundaries. A legal case examination identified the factors rehabilitation and work adaptation arrangements that the employer had taken, the employees participation, the possibilities for relocation and the medical assessment of the employees health. These factors were common for legal cases concerning both physical and psychological diseases and were also closely linked. One conclusion was that the assessment of the employers rehabilitation responsibility and its boundaries in relation to physical and psychological illness are affected by several interacting factors. Another conclusion was that differences, between the categories of legal cases, regarding the medical assessments leads to a difference in the assessment of the employers rehabilitation responsibility and its boundaries.

Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna uppsats var att ur ett arbetsrättsligt perspektiv belysa arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar i förhållande till arbetstagare som lider av fysisk respektive psykisk sjukdom för att bidra till förståelse om rehabiliteringsansvaret tolkas på olika sätt. Därav var forskningsfrågan “hur bedöms arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det i förhållande till fysiska respektive psykiska sjukdomsproblem?”. För att undersöka denna fråga valdes en rättsdogmatisk metod. Resultaten indikerade att det finns flera olika faktorer som är betydelsefulla i förhållande till bedömningen av arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det.

Syftet med denna uppsats var att ur ett arbetsrättsligt perspektiv belysa arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar i förhållande till arbetstagare som lider av fysisk respektive psykisk sjukdom för att bidra till förståelse om rehabiliteringsansvaret tolkas på olika sätt. Därav var forskningsfrågan “hur bedöms arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det i förhållande till fysiska respektive psykiska sjukdomsproblem?”. För att undersöka denna fråga valdes en rättsdogmatisk metod. Resultaten indikerade att det finns flera olika faktorer som är betydelsefulla i förhållande till bedömningen av arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det. De faktorer som identifierades efter en granskning av rättspraxis var de rehabiliterings- och arbetsanpassningsåtgärder som arbetsgivaren vidtagit, arbetstagarens medverkan, möjligheter till omplacering och den medicinska bedömningen av arbetstagarens hälsotillstånd. Dessa faktorer var gemensamma både för rättsfallen som rörde fysiska och psykiska sjukdomsproblem och var även nära sammankopplade till varandra. En slutsats var att bedömningen av arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det i förhållande till fysiska respektive psykiska sjukdomsproblem påverkas av flera faktorer som samverkar med varandra. Den andra slutsatsen var att skillnader, mellan de två kategorierna av rättsfall, gällande den medicinska bedömningen av arbetstagarens hälsotillstånd ger upphov till en skillnad i bedömningen av arbetsgivarens rehabiliteringsansvar och gränserna för det.
