This is an objective, comprehensive evaluation of an individual who, due to an injury, health condition or disability, is demonstrating restriction in their functional and occupational capacity for work.
The aim of the vocational assessment is to identify if an individual is fit to return to their former job. During the assessment, Elva will assess their functional capacity for their previous employment. If a return to their former job is not possible she will then seek to identify suitable alternative roles supported by analysis of the current labour market with vocational recommendations for a safe and sustainable return to work. Elva will then give evidence in relation to her report in court.
