yes, that's one of the requirements contained in the linked information.
you may also have rights to reasonable accommodation under ADA
http://www.ada.gov/
p.s. work comp benefits continue. you may want to notify the comp carrier that the employer is not willing to provide any modified work.
It's possible that by voluntarily quitting you may have jeoprodized partial disability payments.

you might want to file a complaint with your state's labor commissioner.
There are good legal responses to employer itimidation.
most states have anti-discrimination provisions within their work comp laws.

You may want to call the EEOC as well.
Each day is not a rite,it's a given.
