When an employee suffers a compensable injury under the Florida Workers' Compensation Law, a carrier must conduct a reemployment status review and report its determination to the injured employee when the injured employee:
- is unemployed 60 days after the date of injury, and
- is receiving benefits for temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, or wage loss, and
- has not yet been provided medical care coordination and reemployment services voluntarily by the carrier.
Reemployment Status Reviews must be conducted every 90 days thereafter when the above criteria are met.
By statute, a Reemployment Status Review shall include identification of the carrier and the employee, and the carrier claim number and any case number assigned by the Office of Judges of Compensation Claims.
For questions, contact the Division of Workers' Compensation, Employee Assistance and Ombudsman Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (800) 342-1741.
