WCB Issues with Vocational Rehabilitation
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM PST This is a virtual event
Vocational rehabilitation consultants have to follow a 5-step process when an injured worker is referred to VR. They can offer a number of aids to help “maximise and injured worker’s earning.” How a VRC deals with each case depends on the facts. It’s always best for a worker to be well-prepared, in order to try and get their preferred vocational rehabilitation plan. This course will look at the process and how to advise an injured worker to deal with it.
