May 8 – Intermittent Loss of Employment Opportunity: Quantifying the Impact of Future Medical Care Needs on Work Presented by Rick Robinson, Ph.D., MBA, LMHC, CRC, CVE, NCC, CLCP, D/ABVE

This presentation will introduce how evidence for the need for future medical care, such as a life care plan, may be quantified to illustrate an intermittent – yet cumulative loss of employment access. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. The attendee will learn the importance of evaluating ongoing medical care needs in vocational analysis. 
  2. The attendee will understand and be able to explain the term loss of employment opportunity.
  3. The attendee will understand that not all injuries result in an enduring loss of earning capacity – some may result in a loss of work opportunity over time.
  4. The attendee will learn a method to quantify loss of work opportunity in conducting her/her vocational analysis.  

June 12 – BLS Resources for Vocational Rehabilitation Presented by Bruce Bergman, Economist, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

his presentation will dive into the Bureau’s newest addition, the Occupational Requirements Survey (ORS). The Social Security Administration plans to use ORS data in adjudication of disability claims, and vocational rehabilitation professionals can also draw upon these data to assist with their evaluations. We’ll review the latest ORS results and discuss concepts and methods used in the survey.

We’ll also examine other resources from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that might be helpful in your work.
