Edina Workplace Restriction Violation Attorneys
When you are hurt at work often you will be been given a set of workplace restrictions, specifying the type of work that you can do. Your employer is legally required to accommodate these restrictions for you, and if they fail to do so or try to pressure you to break those restrictions, that is a violation of your rights.
At Malone Bailey, our workers’ compensation attorneys work hard to help injured workers get the fair compensation that they are owed by their employers, and that they are provided the time and accommodations that they need in order to fully recover. From our Edina and St. Cloud offices, we have served clients for over 30 years with dedicated representation.
You And Your Employer Must Abide By Your Work Restrictions
When you are being treated for your workplace injuries, your doctor will provide you with a list of the accommodations that you will need in order to support your recovery. You will need to be certain that your employer receives this, and once this is done you must make sure your employer is sticking to them.
Part of this responsibility lies with you, as you will need to work up to the level that your doctor has deemed you capable of in order to retain your work restrictions. If you find that you are not able to do the work that your employer has provided, you will need to go back to your doctor to get an updated evaluation for your work restrictions.
If your employer does not agree to abide by your work restrictions, or they are trying to get you to work beyond them that is violation of your workers’ compensation. They are required by law to either accommodate you, find suitable replacement work for you, or provide you vocational retraining if you can no longer do your previous work. If they fail to do this, then you should speak with our attorneys to find out what your next options are.
