Vocational Rehabilitation

Definition

Vocational Rehabilitation — one aspect of the overall rehabilitation process that focuses on restoring an injured person's physical and mental capacity to perform work in a safe and productive manner. This process is normally geared to individuals whose disabilities permanently prevent them from returning to their prior positions without job modification and is normally overseen by a vocational counselor or therapist. For instances involving work-related injuries, the state workers compensation act or another regulation establishes the type and range of services that must be provided the injured employee.
