Preparing a Labor Market Survey in Workers’ Compensation cases assists the Vocational Case Managers in their goals of finding the Recovering Worker RTW alternatives!

A Labor Market Survey (LMS) is a method of researching and gathering real-time information about the Labor Market and targeted jobs that are specific to where a Recovering Worker (RW) lives. The overall purpose is to confirm whether the RW is qualified for employment within the identified labor market/jobs, the likelihood of obtaining this employment in his/her local labor market identifying actual starting salary expectations.

All our information is gathered virtually through a variety of avenues including telephonic contacts with the employer, online help wanted research, review of employer websites, and research of published online employment statistics/wage data for the local area.

An LMS can be an integral component of an Early Intervention Vocational Program.

Early Intervention Vocational Services:

  • Keep all parties focused on RTW
  • Save a minimum of 2 to 4 months of TTD
  • Decrease likelihood of “Disability Syndrome”
  • Increase Employability, Shorter Time to Employment and RTW
  • GED, ESL, and/or basic computer training can be completed concurrent with medical treatment
  • Job seeking skills can also be completed during medical treatment
  • Upon release for RTW, placement can be initiated immediately
  • Issues regarding Motivation and Adherence can be addressed

A Labor Market Survey:

  • Can be completed on records alone or can be completed after the vocational assessment
  • Labor Market Surveys can be created nationwide and in other countries
  • Labor Market Surveys document specific employers, jobs, wages, requirements, and job openings (current, projected, past) in the recovering worker’s geographical area
  • Validates a labor market
  • May identify if specific short-term training would increase wage earning ability
  • Can be used for settlement purposes or to document if placement is feasible
