Employees with mental health problems are more likely to succeed in returning to work if they have active support from a supervisor, and if they can access cognitive behavioural therapy.

Occupations involving ‘heavy work’ may be exempt from the proposal by the Dutch government to increase the retirement age from 65 to 67 years. The concept of heavy work is multi-dimensional; it should not be solely about physically heavy work but should at least also take account of the psychosocial workload. It will be difficult to identify...
