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).
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.
