My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: NEW YORK
I have 2 questions
Should an FCE be required to evaluate your woking capability in order for WC to determine your ability to go back to work, and what kind of work you are capable of doing before they make a final decision. Or can they just go by the doctor opinion without an FCE test being done?
WC gave me a Vocational Rehab Councilor who looked at my resume and said that I could do work as an Data Entry Clerk or an Office Asst. Jobs I did 26 years ago, when I look for work they say I need more recent experience.
Can WC send you back to work without Vocational Rehab, base on a job you did 26 years ago, yet your experience is 26 years old. would that injured worker be entitle to training before returning to work?
