Are we required to find alternate duties for workers with non-work-related injuries?

Question: We have a staff member who had shoulder surgery for an existing issue and we have him on modified duties at present, but we may not be able to provide these duties for the entire recovery time (3–6 months). Could I please get advice on the business’s requirements for finding alternate duties for staff with a non-work-related injury?
