Labor Market Research

The labor market survey (LMS) is a method of information gathering about particular jobs that are specific to a geographical area for an individual being served. The purpose of conducting a LMS is to look into the placeability factor of employment, i.e., whether clients who have the qualified skills can actually obtain the job.

Ticket to Work Employment Network

Employment networks are organizations that can help you find and keep a job. Employment networks also provide other employment support services at no cost to you. The Ticket program gives you the opportunity to choose from a variety of employment networks.

An employment network may be a single organization that provides all of the services you need, or it can be a group of providers. The employment network you choose also may work with others who are not part of the employment network to provide the services you need.

Transferable Skills Analysis

Transferable skills analysis (TSA) is another technique that is commonly used to evaluate the skills of an individual. This is probably most applicable to individuals who have an injury in which their pre-injury skills are compared to the post-injury skills level for job placement.

The TSA process is usually used in situations in which the worker has skills that can be transferred to another position that result in a relatively quicker job placement and the return to self-sufficiency for the worker, as compared to a job placement that bears a minimal relationship to existing skills of the worker.

Vocational Opinion(s)

Vocational experts may testify as to special skills possessed by the plaintiff which render her damages more substantial. The expert may offer an opinion of the value of the plaintiff’s services, which is particularly helpful when the pay scale in the plaintiff’s profession is unfamiliar to the fact-finder. Vocational experts may use their knowledge of the job market, employment trends and skills necessary to perform in various occupations to support their testimony as to the economic harm which the plaintiff experienced as a result of her injuries.

Thus, vocational experts serve as a link between medical experts and economic experts. It is not necessary to utilize a vocational expert, but where plaintiff’s earning capacity is in doubt, as for example in the case of an injury to a minor child or an unemployed adult, the testimony of a vocational expert can significantly bolster plaintiff’s claims as to lost earnings.

Vocational Evaluation

Vocational evaluation, on the other hand, is a specific process that involves the appraisal of a person's work related characteristics important for education and training to obtain and maintain employment. It includes a comprehensive review of specific work characteristics, including but not limited to occupational interests, specific job skills, worker traits, general intelligence, temperaments, physical capacities, strength, range of motion, and other work-related functions and aptitudes (Chan et al., 1997).

Pertaining to the specificity of vocation evaluation, there are different domains that are imperative in understanding the more global picture of vocational success for individuals with disabilities. Such domains include: personal factors such as personality, interests, intelligence, cognitive capacities, educational achievement, personal adjustment, social adjustment, interpersonal skills, and work-related factors such as work experience, vocational adjustment, vocational aptitudes, and work behaviors.

Additionally, situational factors also play an important role in vocational rehabilitation needs and employment outcomes. Such factors include medical, psychiatric, psychological, cultural, social, recreational, vocational, educational and environmental needs.

Vocational Expert Witness

A Vocational expert is an expert in the areas of vocational rehabilitation, vocational and earning capacity, lost earnings, cost of replacement labor and lost ability/time in performing household services. They perform evaluations for purposes of civil litigation, as an aspect of economic damages.

Vocational experts identify what the person could have earned prior to the incident, compared to what they are likely to earn following the incident. Economic experts calculate the value of those earnings over time, so the difference, if any, between the two income streams is clearly understood. Those who act as vocational/economic experts blend the two disciplines, and offer testimony in both arenas.

A vocational "expert" is designated by an attorney as an expert who testifies in court, whereas a vocational "consultant" does not testify.

Qualifications to testify in court as an expert in the field of vocational rehabilitation are fairly strict and related to State certification and licensure. Typically, a graduate degree in counseling or psychology plus certification/licensure will suffice. Ultimately, the Rules of Evidence in the jurisdiction preciding over the civil case prevail. Most Rules of Evidence relating to the qualifications of an expert witness are based on the Federal Rules of Evidence; Rule 702, which states:

If scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of an opinion or otherwise.
