Employment development and placement (EDAP)

We encourage all job search support services providers who have contracts with us to participate in our Employment Development and Placement Program (EDAP). You don’t need a referral to participate. You can help our vocational rehabilitation consultants identify job opportunities for injured workers through our Hire a Worker program.


If you identify a job opening or employment opportunity for an injured worker, let us know. If we identify a suitable candidate, we will ask that you work with the vocational rehabilitation consultant and the potential employer to help place the client.
