We evaluate the impacts of a compulsory dialogue meeting for longâ€ term sickâ€ listed workers in Norway. The meeting is organised by the local social security administration after around six months of absence; its purpose is to bring together the absentee, the employer and the family physician to discuss whether arrangements can be made to facilitate partial or full work resumption. Our causal analysis is based on randomâ€ assignmentâ€ like geographical variation in the meeting propensity. We find that the meetings reduce absence duration considerably, both through a notification and an attendance effect. Moreover, estimated benefits by far exceed estimated costs.
