The following comes from the web - original act - not sure if it has been amended.

Injury Prevention, Rehabilitation, and Compensation Act 2001 049
Commenced: 1 April 2002
108 Assessment of claimant's vocational independence
(3) The purpose of a medical assessment is to provide an opinion for the Corporation as to whether, having regard to the claimant's personal injury, the claimant has the capacity to undertake any type of work identified in the occupational assessment and reflected in the claimant's individual rehabilitation plan.

I wonder how many folks have been found fit for work because they have been deemed fit for one or more job types that have never been part of their individual rehabilition plan.
