North Carolina Workers' Compensation & Injury Attorneys

What happens if an injured worker declines a valid job offer?

If an injured worker declines a valid job offer, out of work compensation will end.  If the employer offers a return-to-work position that pays less than the workers’ time-loss compensation rate, the worker will likely be eligible for partial compensation to make up the difference.  This benefit is based on a comparison of the pre-injury wage less than the actual wages earned through a return to work and pays 67% of the difference, up to a state-wide cap on compensation or the time compensation rate, whichever is less.
