I'm going in for my 2nd surgery on my rotator cuff that was destroyed during some training at work in May of 2007.
My employer now is saying that I must "request" a light-duty assignment and they'll see if anything is available, because I will be unable to do my regular duty job for 4-5 months.
My ? is what are my rights? What if they deny me a light duty assignment or change my shift from what I was working? Do I have the right to stay with the same working hours?
Thanks for any help.
