Total disability/light-duty work/training as work
The Board held that a training program offered by the employer's retro group at a resource center for various employers was a valid light-duty job offer under RCW 51.32.090(4). The Board rejected the notion that training isn't meaningful or respectful work. This job offer of training was in keeping with the legislative goal that employers maintain an employment relationship with their injured workers who are receiving TLC benefits.
