Injured worker with some questions.
Got my answer thanks!
technically ADA law requires a discussion with the employee about reasonable accommodation.
a blanket requirement for a full release for all workers is a violation.

workers comp is not health insurance.
you are not covered. the employer is the policyholder and protected from your claim whether you are continually employed their or not.

I think he is also over his head requiring these meetings. if you are injured in an auto accident or in any way during this reporting process you have the right to file another comp claim as it will be considered on the job. you should talk to him about less risky ways of being updated.
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.
delete please thanks billy
Honestly all I want is to recover and get back to work but unfortunately it cannot be that easy. I love my job and it had taken me a year and a half just to get the job and I had to move to a very expensive area for the job and then just my luck I get injured at work.

I would also have to move out of the area since there is no other job around here that would pay me as well as my current employer has and with no high school degree ect it would be impossible to find one similar in this area and be able to afford the cost of living.

Also thanks for the advice, and right now I dont want to goto a lawyer because I still have hope that I can return to my job.
delete please thanks billy
Yeah I guess I was ignorant to what people go through who are injured at work. I had no idea it was like this, it seems no one is on the side of the injured guy.

Oh well guess whatever happens, happens and thanks again for the help and good luck to you as well.
