Re: Ongoing Doctor Work Restriction Problem
Are employees required to submit a work restriction note to their employer
They can't, they aren't "law"
Under what statutes and/or law can work restrictions be found?
Restrictions are based on a medical condition, your work duties and your doctors opinion.
A need for surgery doesn't necessarily mean work restrictions.
There are many medical conditions that don't restrict an employee from full duty.
Like I said, it depends on your work duties as they relate to your condition.
In your case the doc must have a reason to believe that your hernia doesn't have an effect on your ability to perform your job.
This isn't rare, happens all the time.
