Our Services

When assessing the employability of persons with injuries and disabilities, we are in most cases dealing with physical, cognitive or psychological problems which are reported to have resulted from particular accidents or incidents or diseases. These problems are then considered to have a negative impact upon the person’s capacity for work.

In order to accurately determine the nature of these problems, Vocational Capacity Centre can perform the following assessments:

Functional Capacity Evaluation – Conducted by a Physiotherapist

Vocational Assessment – 
Conducted by a
Vocational Psychologist

Medical Assessment – 
Conducted by a Rehabilitation Physician or an Occupational Health Physician

Clinical Psychological Assessment – 
Conducted by a Clinical Psychologist

Neuropsychological Assessment – Conducted by a Clinical Psychologist

Job Match – 
Generated by a Vocational Psychologist

Labour Market Analysis –

Market Analyst

Domestic Assessment –

Earning Capacity Assessments

An Earning Capacity Assessment, also called Employability Assessment, reviews and provides recommendations on an individual’s functional ability, vocational skills, transferrable skills, aptitude, interests and work experiences to assess an individual’s current earning capacity. The assessment is conducted by a combination of registered Vocational Psychologist, Physiotherapist, Labour Market Analyst.

All recommendations are made in consideration of the individual’s local labour market and with review of the physical, intellectual and educational requirements of a Job Match.

The assessment is a valuable tool used in Personal Injury claims. We provide objective, consistent and comprehensive evaluations to enable a thorough understanding of earning capacity.

A comprehensive report provides the person’s vocational options, retraining needs and analysis of the current labour market.

Accurate and confidential assessments

An appropriate assessment will identify those who are employable and the tasks they can perform, as well as if the individual is both able and willing to work. Employability is also influenced by:

  • The individual’s functional limitations
  • A match between a person’s residual skills and job demands
  • The individual’s perceived and reported pain reactivity
  • The availability of the appropriate job (ie. labour market trends)
  • The person’s family expectations and obligations
  • The individual’s competitiveness in job seeking and acquisition
  • The person’s motivation to work
  • The person’s ability to deal with the pressures experienced in different work environments
  • The level of acceptance and support of employers for persons with disabilities
  • The impact of litigation on the individual’s willingness to actively engage in work

All information provided to the Vocational Capacity Centre will be treated as confidential within the constraints of the medico-legal process, and will not be used for any other purpose. A written copy of our Privacy Policy is also available at our office.

Clients

At Vocational Capacity Centre we are committed to the highest professional and ethical standards in our aspiration to provide our clients with the highest quality, fairest and most objective assessments possible.

As a result of our standards of professionalism, Vocational Capacity Centre has continued to receive high level of respect, confidence and credibility within the legal jurisdictions which utilise our reports, and in which our consultants serve as expert professional witnesses.

We employ the most qualified and widely experienced group of professional assessors, and have:

  • A wide referral base
  • An abiding commitment to the Code of Conduct for Expert Witnesses
  • A commitment to the provision of comprehensive reports that incorporate extensive information regarding an individual’s medical, functional, psychological and /or vocational status.
  • The ability to combine assessment reports into a concise Executive Summary that provides an overall conclusion by all assessors
  • A constantly reviewed compendium of information about labour market conditions and employment opportunities for specific areas and regions throughout New South Wales and other parts of Australia

The staff at Vocational Capacity Centre are acutely aware that the adversarial nature of the Australian legal system lends itself to the use of assessing consultants as so–called “hired guns”, advocating for either the plaintiff or defendant in the case of a claim. We explicitly repudiate such approaches and intentions for our medico-legal assessment services.
