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.

Since 1969, we’ve continuously believed in providing clients with personalized attention needed to secure them both swift legal solutions and peace of mind.

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 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
