My husband was injured on 02/01/07. End result; torn rotator cuff. After 3 months of therapy the Orthepedist decided surgery was in order. The surgery was done 10 days ago. His employer called yesterday wanting to set up light duty work for him. He has not even had his post surgery exam yet! Oh yes, his employer decided to keep this "in house" and not involve Workers Compensation. They have been paying his weekly benefit amount as prescribed by Indiana WC; now however we are concerned that they will require him to come back to work at a low paying clerical position immediately. I have been advised that his employer is required to pay him his normal wage even though he is restricted to a lesser paying job. Is this true; and what are his rights as far as when he returns to work even on restricted duties?
