Shy Fired On Light Duty
Hey everyone, well I got fired from my job yesterday for "not returning to work full duty within 180 days of the injury"
, What are the legalities of is a workers comp injury and I am still being treated "awaiting another surgery on my left shoulder"
They have been poroviding me with light duty work up until yesterday when they decieded to fire about 7 light duty people.
So my questions are, is this legal for them to do? who has to pay me?
Iam basically lost on what to do, and what they did if its legal or not.
I am a California worker.
All advice and help appreciated.

RE: Fired On Light Duty
i assume you were on partial disability and not permanent and stationary yet.
if so, and the employer can no longer supply light duty, your temporary total disability will be restarted.
make sure your carrier is informed of your job status.
workers comp laws don't require that employers hold a job or make a new job for you.
