A work-related injury or illness can be a devastating event for a worker and the worker’s family. The potential negative impact for lost income and benefits can be great. It is the goal of the Rehabilitation Division to help injured workers return to the workplace. The target is to return workers to positions that are near or at “pre-injury” status and wage. We provide these services at no extra cost to employer, insurer, or employee. Commission staff also helps workers explore alternative employment when a status return is not possible. This development includes in-depth transferable skills analysis, vocational exploration, and job placement identification.

The Rehabilitation Division utilizes an automated Rehabilitation Case Management System (RCMS) to communicate with medical providers, sureties, and employers. An electronic referral form is available online for any business or individual to access.
