Vocational and return-to-work services in Arkansas
Employability and return-to-work issues often arise in Arkansas workers’ compensation and liability claims. At claim settlement, these issues can add substantial costs if you are not prepared to present current and credible vocational and work options the injured worker is able to perform even with limitations.
Arkansas employers’ Death & Permanent Disability exposure continues to increase. Consequently, vocational services are more important than ever in cost efficiency and return-to-work efforts.
Systemedic offers a comprehensive program of vocational services designed to promote return to work or alternative employment in Arkansas workers’ compensation, liability, FELA, and long-term disability.
Check out the complete menu of vocational services below for help determining reasonable accommodations for an injured worker.
