Vocational rehabilitation is a process which enables people with functional, psychological, developmental, cognitive and emotional impairments or health disabilities to overcome barriers to accessing, maintaining or returning to employment or other useful occupation.

When should I involve a Vocational Case Manager?
One of the fundamental principles of vocational rehabilitation and maintaining employment is early instruction. It is all too easy for lines of communication to fail following a serious event or accident leading to misunderstanding between employers and employees which can ultimately lead to the loss of employment.
