Prior to working for XYZ Company, Mr. Martinez indicated that he worked for three to four years as a route salesman and district manager for Nehi soda in Austin, Texas. He worked for Coca Cola as a salesman and district manager in Bryan, Texas for one to two years. Mr. Martinez worked for 7-Up in San Antonio, Texas as a truck driver, salesman and district manager until they were sold to Nehi and he was laid off. He then went to work for an independent 7-Up owner and worked for approximately one year as the operations manager. He was unable to recall dates of employment for these jobs. 21. Currently, Mr. Martinez is volunteering for four hours per day, two days per week for the American Heart Association. His duties include answering the telephone, stuffing envelopes and other office activities. Mrs. Martinez reported that it took Mr. Martinez two to three months to learn the telephone extensions of the staff at the American Heart Association. There are approximately eight employees and he used to put calls through to the wrong extension. The American Heart Association was very supportive and accommodating and gave him the time to learn the extensions. 22. Mr. Martinez also volunteers one day per week for three hours at Family Home Shelter. Family Home Shelter coordinates and provides programs for battered women. There is only one person in the office and Mr. Martinez assists her with activities such as filing, stuffing envelopes and other office tasks. 23. On April 12, 2011, Mark Brown, MD, who is board certified in internal medicine, 19 stated Mr. Martinez is unable to do any continuous work of any sort that would require the use of his short term memory and any continuous concentration. He states that Mr. Martinez is unable to write or speak fluently. Dr. Brown further indicated that Mr. Martinez is restricted from any climbing, operating heavy machinery and lifting above twenty one pounds. Dr. Brown further certified that Mr. Martinez continues to be unable to work and that his condition will not improve Vocational Analysis: According to Best Practices Principles, a vocational evaluator should utilize a variety of methods, tools and approaches to provide accurate vocational evaluations and assessments. 21 Vocational assessments focus on the injured person s interests, aptitudes and physical capabilities along with their established work history. 22 A vocational evaluation may be defined as a process to predict or estimate work behaviors and vocational potential through the use of various tests, techniques and procedures. Tests designed to measure the worker s personality, achievement, intelligence level, vocational aptitude and vocational interests are widely used for diagnostic purposes with injured workers and are invaluable in assessing the feasibility for employment of an injured worker.

7 Vocational Assessment for Carlos Martinez August 10, 2011 Page 6 of Prior to the interview, I mailed Mr. Martinez the vocational interest and work values tests with written instructions for completing them. He had difficulty completing the tests and called for additional instructions. Once he was given step by step instructions, he was able to complete the untimed activities. During the clinical interview, Mr. Martinez indicated that he did have some difficulty but did the best he could. The following are his results: The Career Occupational Preference System (COPS) The test is an indicator of an individual s interests.

Work Values Assessment The Career Orientation Placement and Evaluation Survey- COPES The COPES is an assessment that measures personal values. It measures those value constructs which have been repeatedly demonstrated through research to reflect major dimensions representing the vocational motivation in the values domain. The following are Mr. Martinez preferences for work values. Investigative: This person values clear cut activities in which they see the concrete results of their work and do not need to solve many complex problems. Carefree: This type of person values work act ivies where they can be carefree and use their imagination. Independence: This type of person values activities in which they are relatively free of rules and are not restricted by social obligations. Leadership: This type of person needs to be seen as important and usually take positions of leadership. They make decisions, direct others and speak for a group. Flexible: This type of person values activities n which they can take things as they come and do note need to keep things orderly. Privacy: This type of person prefers to keep activities private and is not concerned with being considered a famous person. Realistic: This type of person values activities in which they do not rely on aesthetic senses and are not involved with appreciation or artistic qualities. Social: This type of person likes working with people in a friendly situation and likes to help others and work as a team player. 26. Data from Mr. Martinez previous employment, education and current physical restrictions was used to complete a Transferable Skills Analysis (TSA) to determine what jobs he might be capable of performing. (See Attachment 3) Mr. Martinez has not completed a functional capacity evaluation to determine his limitations/restrictions. The physical limitations used were those noted by Dr. Brown on April 5, Additional limitations have been adjusted 8

9 Vocational Assessment for Carlos Martinez August 10, 2011 Page 8 of 10 based on Mr. Martinez presentation during the clinical interview. See Attachment 3 for further details regarding the TSA. 27. This TSA was performed through SkillTRAN software an Internet-Based Service. In preparing the TSA, I also relied on the print and online versions of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, 24 Classification of Jobs 2000, 25 The Transitional Classification of Jobs, 26 and the Guide for Occupational Exploration SkillTRAN has the capability of comparing thousands of occupations to the current profile of an individual. The results for Mr. Martinez indicated there were twelve directly transferable jobs that he would have transferable skills to perform. The TSA indicated there were no closely related jobs. Directly Transferable Occupations are those which share at least one of the 3-digit work fields as known from the past work history and which have at least one of the same 3-digit MPSMS codes from any of the jobs performed in the past. Directly transferable occupations have primary job duties which are very similar to past work and little or no learning of job duties would be anticipated in a new occupation. 28 The following are the twelve directly transferable jobs that were listed for Mr. Martinez. DOT Code Job Title Manager, Computer Manager, Branch Manager, Customer Technical Service Vice President Association Executive Manager, Industrial Organization Manager, Hotel or Motel Manager, Department Preventive Maintenance Coordinator Management Trainee Fund Raiser I These directly transferable jobs would not be appropriate for Mr. Martinez due to his residual cognitive and physical limitations. These positions are highly skilled and skilled positions which require high level cognitive skills such as planning, organization, concentration and attentions well as the ability to manage or supervise others. At this time, Mr. Martinez is unable to perform those types of duties. 24 Website: Dictionary of Occupational Titles, originally published by the U. S. Department of Labor and Employment and Training Administration 1991, Volume II, Fourth Edition, Revised 1992, 25 Janet E. Field and Timothy F. Field, COJ 2000 with an O*NET 98 Crosswalk, (Elliott and Fitzpatrick, 1995) 26 Janet E. Field and Timothy F. Field, The Transitional Classification of Jobs, 6 th Edition (Elliott and Fitzpatrick, 2004) 27 The Complete Guide for Occupational Exploration, 1993 Ed. J. Michael Farr (JIST Works, Inc.) 28 SkillTRAN Transferable Skills Analysis Report for Carlos Martinez, August 9, ibid 9

10 Vocational Assessment for Carlos Martinez August 10, 2011 Page 9 of The TSA identified no closely related occupations but did identity forty-four generally transferable occupations. Generally Transferable Occupations are those which share at least one of the 2-digit work fields from the past work history and which involve at least one of the 2-digit MPSMS codes from the past. Two digit coding clusters occupations into generally related groups which may not share the same specific skills as developed in the past. Generally transferable occupations do not include directly or closely transferable titles. Some learning of essential job duties is quite likely to be necessary. 30 The following are examples of the generally transferable occupations. DOT Code Job Title Field Representative Sales Representative, Dairy Supplies Sales Representative, Hotel & Rest Financial-Aid Counselor Sales Agent, Financial-Report Service Sales Representative, Franchise Sales Representative, Printing Sales Representative, Home Furnish Sales Representative, Automotive Purchasing Agent These generally transferable occupations would also not be appropriate for Mr. Martinez. Again these positions are highly skilled or skilled jobs that require advance cognitive skills such as planning, organization, memory, communication skills and attention and concentration. For these reasons, none of the transferable positions would be appropriate for Mr. Martinez. 32. Conclusion Mr. Martinez has suffered a stroke. As a result of the stroke he has residual physical, cognitive and emotional deficits. These deficits are so severe that Dr. Brown has indicated Mr. Martinez is unable to do any type of work and that this will not change. The TSA performed also did not identify any appropriate occupations that Mr. Martinez would be able to perform based on his residual deficits. 33. Although Mr. Martinez has been able to perform volunteer work in a sheltered environment, he is under no stress or pressure to produce any specific amount of work. These environments are very supportive and accommodating of his deficits and any mistakes. They are not representative of a competitive employment environment. 34. It is my opinion based on the information reviewed, physician statements, the TSA, Social Security Disability Insurance and long term disability findings and the clinical interview that Mr. Martinez would be unable to work in a competitive employment environment. His 30 ibid 31 ibid 10

11 Vocational Assessment for Carlos Martinez August 10, 2011 Page 10 of 10 cognitive deficits, physical deficits and fatigue would prevent him from obtaining and retaining work and therefore, he has no residual earning capacity at this time.
