workers comp question - nagol2005 - 01-13-2015

I'm from Il. I was told to return to work on Dr. orders of sedentary duty, lifting up to 10 lbs occasionally, sitting mostly. I finished regular p.t. and am starting work hardening therapy. Should I be getting paid for the work hardening therapy as part of workers comp insurance as I am no longer receiving workers comp payments?

only if your employer has no work within your temporary restrictions; if your restrictions are permanent you need a rating to determine amount of additional disability payments.
if your employer has work for you, you can't collect full wages and temporary disability for the same period.
