I am new to the forum and have some WC questions. I live in Ohio.
I injured my left elbow at work this past January. In March I had surgery to repair the damage. Therpy lasted through the end of May. At that time I was released to return to work with the permanet restriction of no repetitive motion. The company (self-insured) denied the claim and I was let go the second week of May after having used up all my sick days. I have my first WC hearing this week.
My WC attorney has told me that even if we win, it will be up to the company as to wether they will take me back or not. I thought the company had to make reasonable accommodations for me as long as it
would'n cost them too much. My attorney's concern is to get the claim allowed. He said they do not deal with much outsde of that. Who would I contact about new training If I can't get back with the company?
