WC-9 (06/17) Workers’ Compensation Reinstatement Rights NOTICE VERMONT LAW REQUIRES POSTING OF THIS NOTICE 21 VSA §643b Reinstatement; seniority and beneﬁ ts protected www.labor.vermont.gov FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Vermont Department of Labor P. O. Box 488 Montpelier, Vermont 05601-0488 Email: [email protected] Telephone: (802) 828-2286 TDD: (800) 650-4152 Fax: (802) 828-2195 This law provides that an employer who regularly employs ten or more people (at least 10 of whom work more than 15 hours a week), has an obligation to rehire a worker who has suffered a work related injury provided that the following conditions are met: 1. The worker recovers from the injury within two (2) years of the onset of disability; and 2. The worker keeps the employer informed of his or her interest in reinstatement and his or her current mailing address; and 3. The worker had an expectation of continuing work had the injury not occurred; and 4. The worker is physically capable of performing either his or her prior job, if available, or an alternative suitable position. Reinstatement must be with all beneﬁ ts earned up to the date of injury, including both seniority and accrued leave time. Obviously, such beneﬁ ts need not accrue during the period of actual disability. Please note that the right to reinstatement applies only to the ﬁ rst available suitable job. Thus, the employer is not obligated either to create an “extra” position for a returning worker or to lay- off a current employee in order to comply with this law. Should you have questions regarding the above, please contact the Vermont Department of Labor, Workers’ Compensation and Safety Division at 802-828-2286 or our website: www.labor.vermont.gov.
