Help please Was on light duty wc doctor....new doctor out of work till .. - Feelbad - 01-25-2019

Ok been a month or so going to wc doctor they really wasnt doing anything at all... decided to change Doctor an this Doctor put me out of work till further test (MRI). What do I need to do next as for as my job? Do I contact them or will the doctor or do my attorney contact my job? I don't want to just not show up there an get FIRED.. I was forced to get a attorney because for a month they really just kept just pumping meds my way and no further treatment

Usually they give you a note or something that you give to your boss... That's how it is here in NY..

When you are too sick to work most employers require you to notify them.
Have The doctor should send a report to the carrier and a copy to the employer.
