End of light duty
#1
My 90 day light duty ends the end of May. I'm a security officer in a medical ctr.
Have completely torn ACL right knee with arthritis as well.
My doctor won't clear me to go back to security work.
My employer doesn't have another position for me.
I'm currently receiving gel injections and my PT is finished.
I'm in Maryland. Any idea on what I may expect going forward?

I've already been through the Maryland website.
Wondering what happens after they terminate me when light duty ends and I'm not fully cleared to return to my regular job.

You receive temporary disability benefits:
From the link I posted:
“[i] If an employee's injury has resulted in a disability that prevents the person from returning to work at all -that is, the person is completely disabled for all work purposes- then the employee may receive temporary total disability payments.[\i]

Thanks for the reply.
I believe the employer will fight the temp partial payments.
I may have to wait for a hearing which might take 3 months.

Under fmla you may have job protection for 12 weeks; make sure your employer applies it to your disability period. If you are going to have difficulty with loan payments or creditors, notify them ahead of time about your disability situation. Most will rework any payments until you are re employed.
