employers offer to return to work....
#1
Well went and got the letter, my boss here in our local area was very polite and said they would do what ever they can to accomidate.. And this is how it is stated......

We have recieved DR. ----------'s medical evaluation report regarding the work-related injury you substained on Nov 6, 2007. The report is based on records from all your treating physicians including your final medical evaluation with dr------ (surgeon for pelvis and hip reconstruction) and dr-------- (end of healind impairment). Dr------ Agreed with the dr (end of healing) assessment and has indicated that your work restrictions are now permanent, and include:


Light to medium work frequent lifting of 10 pounds.
20 lb maximum lifting with avoiding squatting and not bending more than 90 degrees.
No climbing ladders and stairs on a seldom basis..


We have reviewed the essential function of your current position as a delivery driver and have determined that we are able to accommodate your restrictions..

The route we have to offer is in district ---. it involves in daily delivery, picking up returned items and collecting. And again the essential requirements are within the restrictions established by the physicians, if necessary, an accommodation can be made to decrease the size. By doing this you will effectively reduce the weight carried in delivery of products.

Now this is fine and dandy, but these drs (who I cant say) have nothing to do with why I'm out on medical leave... This was reports of my pelvis and hip and was placed at mmi for them. I was removed from work for my back wich was also injured in the accident, and not from my pelvis or hip... In these reports it does not include my treating dr and my new surgeon thats been treating me for my back. Its just an invasive ploy against me, now involving my employer...

I dropped a copy off at my lawer, and states dont wory.. I am to bring this letter to my treating drs for my back and see if he agrees with said restrictions. If he does, I have to go back to work at least to try. If he does not I need him to write my restrictions over and bring them to my employer.......... Sorry long winded but just wanted to share what they are pulling on me....

No where in this discription does it say I have to load my vehicle, which is mandatory. Any one that has been a truck driver who also loads and unloads and delivers products by hand knows there is no way to avoid squating let alone bending no more than 90 degrees...
