I Can’t Return to my old job. Am I Guaranteed a New job at my old pay Rate Following Retraining?

An unfortunate part of the workers’ compensation law is that you only have to be found employable at minimum wage. The job does not have to pay you the same wages you were making when you were injured. Also, the Department of Labor & Industries or the self-insured employer does not have to find you a job. Your time loss compensation terminates when a vocational counselor finds you employable or your doctor releases you to work. It will be left to you to find a job.
