Highlight

A vocational rehabilitation plan is appropriate if it meets the requirements of N.D.C.C. ch. 65-05.1 and gives the injured worker a reasonable opportunity to obtain substantial gainful employment.
Because the legislature intended for injured workers to be provided with actual rehabilitation with a realistic opportunity to return to work, and not merely a theoretical rehabilitation on paper only, WSI must consider all of the injured worker's functional limitations when determining whether the employment options identified in the rehabilitation plan present a realistic opportunity for substantial gainful employment.
