"Assessment" is a measure for those who need extra assistance in charting or testing their work capabilities. "Assessment" is a service for those who need more extensive assessment assistance than what the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) can offer.
The measures are tailored to your individual needs based on your options on the labour market. As part of this measure, it may be necessary to chart/assess
"Assessment" may take place in a sheltered business or in the offices of assessment providers the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) have agreements with, or in a regular business with the assistance of an assessment provider. The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) collaborate with you in evaluating whether you need "assessment" measures.
If you are employed (for example, if you are on sick leave) the assessment can take place at your place of employment. For example, the assessment may survey the company's options for adapting your place of work to your needs. The assessment can also take place at another place of work or at the offices of the assessment provider. Prior to your starting an assessment, the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) must have received a follow-up plan in which your employer documents that the company has tried or evaluated measures to enable you to return to work, and that they have found that these cannot be implemented.
If you are unemployed, the assessment takes place in the offices of the assessment provider or in a regular business with the assistance of the assessment provider. You will receive guidance and help in assessing your options for finding suitable employment.
Generally, "assessment" lasts for up to four weeks, but if necessary it can be extended by up to eight weeks. An evaluation must be made every four weeks.
If you receive benefits to cover your day to day expenses (such as sickness benefits or a work assessment allowance), you will continue to receive these benefits while participating in occupational rehabilitation measures. If you do not receive any of these benefits, you may be entitled to "Stønad ved tiltak" ("Support when participating in measures"), which is to cover your day to day expenses while you participate in rehabilitation measures.
Contact your local NAV office . You, your employer or the medical professional who issued the medical certificate for your sickness leave, can suggest "assessment", but the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) makes the final decision and refers participants to "assessment". If you are on sick leave, the medical professional who issued your medical certificate must be notified of the referral.
