What Role Does a Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist Play in a Claim?

What role does a vocational rehabilitation specialist play in a claim?

An employee may need vocational retraining or help finding a new job at the expense of the employer or its insurance company when the employee cannot return to his or her former job with the employer.

In such a situation, the employer or its insurance company may assign a vocational rehabilitation specialist to help the employee find suitable employment. There are certain rules and laws that protect the employee when searching for suitable employment.

There are also certain rules and laws that an employee must follow when returning to work or an employee’s case, an ability to receive compensation maybe affected. This process can be very confusing. Do not hesitate to seek advice from an attorney concerning vocational rehabilitation and return to work issues.

I highly recommend the attorneys at Daggett Shuler! From my first visit to their office to my last has been a wonderful experience. My son and I were in a car accident and my stepfather recommended this law firm. Everyone was super nice, concerned, and caring. I received updates by calls and emails as the staff worked on my case. I myself made sure to provide quick responses on any requests the staff asked for. I would use their services again!
