The Employment and Rehabilitation Institute of California
Roy and Len Matheson, Ph.D., were co-founders of the Employment and Rehabilitation Institute of California (ERIC) in 1984, the nation’s first full-service industrial rehabilitation center. Providing work capacity evaluation, functional capacity evaluation, and work hardening services, the clinic became a model for hundreds of similar programs throughout the United States and Canada. In 1988, the ERIC clinical program and the growing training programs were organized as separate business entities with Len directing the clinical work and Roy directing the training.
