Retraining in Workers Compensation Claims
March 11, 2015
Sometimes an injured employee is unable to return to their date of injury job. Consequently, there are circumstances when an injured employee can go to school and have the insurance company pay for it. This is called retraining. The purpose of this retraining is to provide the needed training and skills that would allow the injured worker to earn a wage similar to that which they enjoyed prior to their injury. In addition to the actual costs of the retraining program, the insurance company is also responsible for paying wage loss benefits incurred by the employee while attending an approved program.
