Job Search

When an employee with a compensable work-related injury or occupational disease is not able to do regular work, but can perform light duty work (as defined by the attending physician) and no light duty work is available at the regular employer, that employee may still be eligible for Temporary Partial Disability benefits, subject to performing a job search. A job search is the process by which such an employee looks for ANY type of work which falls within the attending physician's physical restrictions and submits a weekly report of the results of the search to the employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier or self-insured employer, taking a suitable job if it is offered, until healing from the injury or disease to the extent that the attending physician returns the employee to his or her regular job.
