I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends: Virginia Guidelines for "Reasonable Job Search" a Good Model for Delaware?



By Cassandra Roberts

As Sarah Palin might say, "You betcha!"  Okay so I gave away that I am a Republican.  But in reply to my last post of February 4, 2011 (fondly known as "the birthday post"), I have the privilege of being joined by a guest blogger today.....and one who came bearing gifts in the form of the attached Virginia Guidelines outlining the objective criteria for a reasonable job search.  Without further ado--

Good Morning Cassandra and Happy Birthday! I read your post on WorkersCompensation.com and had a good chuckle this morning.

Regarding your excitement over Delaware trying to determine what a valid job search effort consists of: There are many states that need to clarify this. I'm attaching what the Virginia Commission published a couple years ago which is the closest to reasonable I've ever seen. (took this right from their website) Hope you find it useful.

Huge thanks to Darlene Vila of East Coast Risk Management.  I like these protocols. Hopefully the members of the Delaware Supreme Court are readers of the blog, along with Darlene.  (I suspect not)  If anyone else cares to weigh in on this topic, feel free to join me and Darlene and we'll call it a party.

Irreverently yours,

Cassandra Roberts
