Return to Work Awareness Act of 2017 (HR 1128, 115th Congress)

The Policy

What it does

Assists survivors of stroke and other debilitating health occurrences in returning to work.


HR 1128, the Return to Work Awareness Act of 2017, enables the Department of Labor's Job Accommodation Network to disseminate information and promote awareness of such information to stroke survivors and to individuals with related conditions such as traumatic brain injury. This information includes how a survivor can:

  • Return to work;
  • Improve their employability and worth in the workplace; and 
  • Enhance their self-employment and entrepreneurship options.
