Benefits & Employment

You're browsing sites in the "Benefits & Employment" topic.

Of course we all want to work, but how? It's not as difficult as you may think and there are multiple incentives that can help you on your way to enjoying gainful employment and the money that comes with it! This section includes sites that explain federal and other benefits and incentives as well as some really great website resources addressing job seeking and job banks (those that actually offer jobs!). We have included sites of helpful employment organizations and a final area covering employment rights and the ADA. In general, these sites are good for the newly injured as well, especialy for those who may try to consider return to work. We know there are more sites out there, but will rely on you to help us, so if you know of any good ones, please be sure to Recommend a New Site and let us know about them.
