Work injury and restrictions question.
#1
I was recently injured at work and both the WC doctor and my doctor subsequently put my on a lifting restriction. My work however says that being on a restriction means I can't fulfill the essential job function and can't work. (Job requirements are to lift 50 pounds my restriction is 20). They "suggested" I talk to my doctor about whether I really need those restrictions. In the past the have found work to do for other employees on restrictions. It seems like from what I've read that because I was injured at work they do need to provide me with work within my restrictions but I'm not sure. I'm in Pennsylvania, thank you for any help.
