Vocational and Return to Work Services
Re-employment of injured workers is a primary goal of the Arkansas workers’ compensation system. Return to work as soon as medically safe and physically feasible is good therapy, physically, emotionally, and financially.
Issues of employability and return to work often arise in 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 your cost containment and return to work efforts.
Systemedic offers a comprehensive program of vocational services designed to promote return to work or alternative employment in workers’ compensation, liability, FELA, and long-term disability. Our vocational rehab counselor has a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor through the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification. Our services include evaluation of work potential, local and national job market surveys, work site assessments and modification, development of rehabilitation and return to work plans, and much more (see our complete menu of vocational services below).
