What Is Vocational Rehabilitation?
Vocational Rehabilitation is a benefit afforded to injured workers when their injuries and doctor’s restrictions prevent them from returning to their pre-injury employer. Pursuant to this benefit, the injured worker may be re-trained at the expense of the insurance company so he/she can re-enter the employment force and be able to earn as much as possible, whether it be hourly pay or salaried pay.
There is no time limit on how long vocational rehabilitation can last and the injured employee will continue to receive his weekly or bi-weekly check from the insurance company as long as he/she is cooperative with the vocational counselor and the vocational plan.
During this sensitive time in your case, it is important to know and understand the options you have and the effect they will have on your case. The insurance-appointed vocational counselor may not have your best interests in mind while you go through the vocational process.
