Labor Market Surveys
If you have an accepted Pennsylvania work injury and are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, your employer might try to reduce the amount of your compensation through a labor market survey. A labor market survey occurs when your employer wants to try to convince a workers’ compensation judge that you can return to some type of work, even if you are no longer able to perform the job you were doing before your work injury.
The first step in the process is a vocational interview with a consultant who is hired by your employer. If you are asked to attend an interview with a vocational consultant, you should contact a workers’ compensation attorney right away for advice. At Shoap Law Offices, located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, our staff will attend the vocational interview and represent you through the entire process that follows.
A Workers’ Compensation Certified Specialist Who Understands Your Rights
In the end, a labor market survey is an attempt by your employer to reduce the amount of your workers’ compensation benefits. The employer could also attempt to stop your workers’ compensation benefits entirely. The process is complicated, and you need to know your rights and how to respond to the contacts that you will be receiving from the vocational consultant.
