Supplemental Job Displacement in California

Committed Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

If you’ve been injured while at work, you may be eligible for supplemental job displacement. These types of benefits are for injured workers who either cannot return to their former job or their employers did not offer them modified or alternative work. Supplemental job displacement comes in the form of a voucher that can be used at a state-accredited school to receive proper education and training that can be used in a new line of work.

At Smolich and Smolich, our team of dedicated Sacramento workers’ compensation lawyers can guide you step-by-step through the complexities of your workers’ compensation case. Since 1969, we’ve continuously believed in providing clients with personalized attention needed to secure them both swift legal solutions and peace of mind.

Unsure about your job displacement eligibility? Learn more about your workers’ compensation case by calling Smolich and Smolich at (916) 571-0400.

Eligibility for Job Displacement

The voucher you receive for your supplemental job displacement can be used to pay for any educational or job training expenses, which can include school fees, books, and career counseling. For injuries that occurred after 2013, the supplemental job displacement voucher is worth $6,000 and is made available after the doctor assigned to your case issues a Physician’s Return-to-Work and Voucher Report.

In order to be eligible for a job displacement voucher, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must have a permanent disability
  • You must be unable to return to your job
  • Your employer has not offered you at least 12 months of modified or alternative work

  • I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small.

    “My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
