A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an underutilized, but incredibly valuable tool in evaluating workers’ compensation matters. An FCE is an objective, systematic process of identifying and assessing an individual’s ability to physically function in relation to work, and in the performance of activities of daily living (ADLs). The FCE can identify the injured workers’ “current ability level” for a successful return to gainful employment or to establish a baseline level of function. FCEs can be used by both Claimant’s and Employers in the context of evaluating or offering modified duty job positions and in settlement.Expand summary
