Your rights as an injured employee
“Rehabilitation is intended to restore the injured employee so the employee may return to a job related to the employee’s former employment or to a job in another work area which produces an economic status as close as possible to that the employee would have enjoyed without disability. Rehabilitation to a job with a higher economic status than would have occurred without disability is permitted if it can be demonstrated that this rehabilitation is necessary to increase the likelihood of reemployment. Economic status is to be measured not only by opportunity for immediate income but also by opportunity for future income.”
–Minnesota Statute 176.102 Subd. 1b
You may be entitled to a vocational rehabilitation consultation if you have been injured on the job. If because of your injury you have been unable to return to work a rehabilitation consultation can be requested. The request can be made at any time after your injury.
A qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC) conducts a rehabilitation consultation to determine your eligibility for vocational rehabilitation services. If eligible, a rehabilitation plan is developed and services are provided at no cost to you. The purpose of vocational rehabilitation is to assist you with your return to work.
Rehabilitation services might include:
- Medical management and coordination of return to work with your date-of-injury employer
- Job development and job placement if return to work with your date-of-injury employer is not possible, and/or
- Retraining for a different occupation
