Vocational Rehabilitation is aimed at reintegrating a worker into the workforce. As part of a worker's overall rehabilitation plan, vocational rehabilitation may involve re-education or retraining.
It may not always be possible for a worker to receive re-education or retraining in their local community. This policy addresses relocation of a worker for the purpose of re-education and retraining.
All claims decisions are appealable to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
