Steps Injured workers should do if you are released to light duty

If you are released to light duty, you must immediately register with the Virginia Employment Commission.  You are also required to look for light duty employment within your doctor’s restrictions.  You will need to file applications for employment with a minimum of two (2) potential employers each week, keeping a written record of the names of the business, the date of contact, and the type of position for which you applied.
