An Overview on the Rehabilitation Rights of Injured Workers

rehabilitation rights of injured workers | Gaylord & Nantais

What Is Vocation Rehabilitation?

Vocation rehabilitation is different than the physical rehabilitation that aids in the healing process. This type of rehabilitation teaches them new skills they can use to find a new job that allows them to return to work. Once the employee has completed their physical therapy and been given the green light to move forward, they can begin to look for a new job that is within the scope of their limitations.

Rehabilitation Opportunities

Vocation rehabilitation offers many different types of opportunities. An employee can choose from several different options when it comes to how they want to receive their training. They can:

  • Return to school
  • Sign up for on-the-job training
  • Job search assistance
  • Ergonomics assessments to find out what type of skill they can perform comfortably
  • Wage assessments
  • Rehabilitation counseling

These opportunities are designed to provide the employee a way to remain a productive and active member of society.

If you have been injured while on the job, you have the right to this type of training. If you have any questions about what your rights and responsibilities are, call Gaylord and Nantais today! They can help you figure out what your options are and how you can get the compensation you deserve.
