That means you must dress appropriately – show up in business attire if you own it. You should also act professionally and not do anything to sabotage the interview so that you don’t get hired.
Remember that the vocational counselor has to “pre-screen” available job opportunities to make sure they are appropriate based on your work restrictions and vocational and educational background. If the job interviewer tells you that the job requires standing 6 hours per day and lifting more than 50 lbs, but your treating doctor has restricted you to a sedentary job that can be performed at a desk only, you need to tell the interviewer about your limitations. That job won’t work. Then tell the vocational counselor too – and put your concerns and a brief account of the interview in writing.
Unfortunately we’ve seen vocational counselors ask employees to apply to jobs that are outside of their light duty restrictions often. We can help you if you’re facing this situation or feel that the counselor is treating you unfairly. Don’t take action until you’ve spoken with a workers compensation lawyer. You should seek help from the Commission before refusing to attend a scheduled job interview. A wrong move during the vocational rehabilitation process can lead to months without benefits.
