A litigator or insurance professional might need to retain a vocational rehabilitation expert witness to support or defend a case involving the issue of employment or an injury. Vocational rehabilitation is a process by which people with disabilities can receive fair and stable employment. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) states that everyone should be treated fairly in the workplace, regardless of disabilities, and vocational rehabilitation works to ensure that such job equality and work environments are available to each individual.
Vocational rehabilitation experts have expertise in employability assessments, job training, wages, and other important areas of employment. In a lawsuit, the expert might review considerations such as earning capacity, workers compensation, and employee benefits, and whether or not a disabled individual is can be employed after an injury.
Expert witnesses in vocational rehabilitation can assist in employment cases. The law enforces equal pay for the disabled, as well as the prevention of any other form of employee discrimination. Any incident or type of workplace environment in violation of equality and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), such as wrongful termination, the failure to provide reasonable accommodations or unfair wages, can lead to a potential court case.
