Retrospective Study of Vocational Rehabilitation Cases

During the 1990s, CATEA regularly provided workplace accommodation assessments for Georgia vocational rehabilitation clients. About a decade later, Work RERC researchers conducted telephone interviews with 54 of these individuals to discover what accommodations had ultimately been implemented and whether they had been effective.

These findings remind us of the importance of taking the time to train employees on the use of their accommodations. They also point out the need to check with employees periodically to ensure that their accommodations are still meeting their needs.
