Abstract

Intention to return to work is based on the determinations of employees to go back to work after prolongs sickness absence due to work injury, accident or illnesses. The aims of this study are i) to examine the relationship between attitude, subjective norms and perceived behavior control with the intention to return to work and ii) to identify the most significant factor of behavioral determinants (attitude, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control) that influences the intention to return to work. This cross-sectional study was done among 160 SOCSO's Insured Persons who have been attended by 35 case managers for participation in Return To Work Program in all over Malaysia. The sampling technique used in this study was proportionate stratified random sampling. A questionnaire was distributed to the respondent by the case managers. Descriptive analysis was used to determine the level of attitude, subjective norms, perceived behavior control and the intention to return to work. Regression analysis was used to identify which behavioral determinant would significantly influence the intention to return to work. The result showed that attitude and subjective norms have significantly influence the respondents' intention in performing return to work. Attitude has been found as the strongest factor in influencing the intention to return to work. The findings have contributed to add the body of knowledge for the policy makers and future research to improve the case management in Malaysia
