I'm new to this forum, and so glad I found it! I am an injured farm worker, receiving WC. My DR. has allowed me to return to work on Sedentary Duty, with restrictions. My work release runs out today.... am I supposed to contact my employer with this information??? (explaining work restrictions, physical capabilities, etc)? My lawyer did not return my 3 calls yesterday, and I'm worried that if I don't go back to work, I'll lose my WC benefits. I am NOT on good terms with my employer... they have tried their hardest to convince the insurance co. that I've injured myself elsewhere, and warned me back on April 13, 2007 that if my Dr. did not release me for work in 3 weeks from that date that my position would be filled by someone else. Please help! Gonna try to get my lawyer on the phone again today, but I'm in a panic! Thanks!
