Seeking Vocational Rehabilitation for Injured Workers
According to North Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws, injured workers are entitled to vocational rehabilitation benefits if their work-related injuries have limited their ability to rejoin the workforce. Vocational training is also available to injured workers forced to return to employment in a different job with wages which are less than 75 percent of their pre-injury wage.
The law in North Carolina allows injured workers to take advantage of different kinds of vocational rehabilitation, depending upon their needs. Injured workers can meet with a vocational counselor to hear about potential leads and prepare for job interviews.
