Light Duty Question About Temporary Work


What should I do when my employer gives me work that is not within my temporary work restrictions?

1. Make sure that your supervisor has a copy of your current work restrictions that are written on your most recent physician progress report. Your employer is entitled to rely on what the doctor has written as your restrictions. If your employer contends that the work is not outside the particular restrictions as written, then you may need to return to see your doctor as soon as possible to have more restrictions added. Ask your doctor to be very specific in writing your restrictions. Meanwhile, you must try to do the job assigned until you get new restrictions.
