When determining if an employer’s offer for temporary, light-duty employment is reasonable and meets the requirements set forth within NRS 616C.475(8), the Court should consider the proximity of the temporary employment to the individual’s residence as compared to the prior employment. When determining whether the temporary employment is substantially similar in hours the Court can look both the number hours of worked per week and the schedule. The reasonableness of an employer’s offer for temporary, light-duty employment is not dependent on the mere fact that an individual believes that the employment is beneath them.
