Back Injury - Georgia Employer is forcing me to return to full duty
#2
worker's comp does not use "fault" as a determination; if you are employed and hurt on the job you are covered -fault or not.
the employer is not required to provide modified or light work.
if you are off work and have not reached Maximum Medical improvement you are entitled to Temporary disability payments until you are released to return to work or reach MMI.
most employments are covered by FMLA and have 12 weeks of job protection while you are off work.
more info on FMLA rights here
http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/
more information on Georgia comp benefits in the handbook and here
http://sbwc.georgia.gov/

Under ADA you also have the right to a discussion with your employer about reasonable accommodation

Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
