Employer advertising jobs I can do with my restrictions, and won't offer me after workers comp NV

Asked 5 months ago - Carson City, NV

They have posted 2 positions I can do with my restrictions and will not offer me anything. I am still an employee and still getting my health benefits. They sent me for vocational rehabilitation training, why would they do that if they have employment I can do?? HR will not answer anything I ask they are just ignoring me? They won't even answer how long I will have health insurance for. It's been 6 months since I worked.
