Work comp: Vocational rehabilitation
Injured workers may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation services if they need help returning to work because of a work-related injury and their employer is unable to offer suitable gainful employment within their work restrictions.
Vocational rehabilitation services are planned by the injured worker, the employer/insurer and a qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC).
DLI's Vocational Rehabilitation unit
The Department of Labor and Industry's Vocational Rehabilitation unit (VRU) provides vocational rehabilitation services to injured workers whose claims have been denied by the employer/insurer. Learn more about VRU.
