Virginia Guidelines for– Meetings between Employee and the Job Counselor

The Virginia Guidelines for meetings between the employee and the vocational rehabilitation counselor are regulated as follows:

Employees do not need to allow the job counselor onto the employee’s residence or property.

  • Meetings should be at reasonable times – typically during the business day or early evening.
  • The job counselor must reasonably accommodate the worker’s personal life.
  • Normal telephone contact should be between 9am and 6pm. No calls should be between 10pm and 7am unless there is an emergency.
  • The job counselor should give adequate advance notice of meetings with the job counselor or interviews with an employer. At least five day’s notice, unless there is an emergency, is considered adequate.
  • Employees who are not released to light duty are not required to actively seek employment. The employee, though, can be asked to meet with the job provider to go over his/her work history, participate in an assessment of functional capacities in anticipation of work release, and prepare for vocational rehabilitation.
