The Next Step Program: More Opportunities and Resources for Injured Workers.
A permanent impairment from a workers' compensation injury can be a major roadblock. Some impairments could even prevent returning to the pre-injury job. Marion will walk us through how The Next Step Program connects permanently disabled injured workers with public institutions, non-profit organizations, and monetary resources to acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to return to meaningful employment.
