What if my employer tells me to perform work that is not doctor approved?
When a doctor gives you physical restrictions on the duties that you are allowed to perform at work it becomes very tricky when you actually go to work. Because employers oftentimes want to push those boundaries and have you do things that might be outside of what you should be doing per your doctor’s orders. If this is to happen it’s very important that you have workers’ compensation attorney that you can contact to protect your rights because this could create a re-injury or potentially result in a disagreement between you and your employer that would result in them firing you and you don’t want that to happen. So, it’s very important that you would contact a workers’ compensation attorney, have them involved in your case, so if this does occur then they can get involved and help you figure out the best solution so that you and your employer can work together with these sort of physicians’ restrictions.
If you’ve been hurt on the job, you are eligible for workers’ compensation. To learn more about filing for workers’ compensation benefits, contact a workers’ compensation attorney from the Hankey Law Office at (800) 520-3633 .
