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

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • 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!”

  • Thank you Sarah and team!

    “I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.”


  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • very empathic

    “I would totally still be lost in the red tape of the social security system without the help of my attorney Sarah Greer and my case manager Sarah Cummings. You ladies rock!! Thank you so much for all your help getting my award. I would personally recommend this law firm to anyone needing help with their claim.”
