    Depends on the type of employment. If it's an office job, sales, or just about anything that doesn't require lifting over 50 lbs and bending and stooping, sure.

    There are many job descriptions that will work with your perm restrictions. They may not be jobs you want to do but the IC won't care about that.

    The good news is if you worked in a field that requires these movements and you can't do them and the job paid well you may be looking at a nice WD.

    I believe if its a work injury and they cant find a job that suits your limatation they may have to pay to have you go to school to train in somthing you can do to make a living.

    If you can't go back to the type of work you used to do, and need schooling to find a new job, everyone is entitled to voc. rehab.

    Yes voc rehab is available for those that can not return to their former position. As long as you don't expect to be sent off for a 4 year degree at a university, you can be retrained.
