My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
I was injured in a work related car accident in 1/2011. I have a herniated disc and my primary job is outside sales. Therefore, I have a company issued car, computer, phone etc. I have had the car this whole time while on disability. I need to continue to have access to the computer for expense reports etc.
My Manager called me at home the other day and asked me to return all of my company property. He sent a letter to my house w/o attorney copied. This letter is normally what is sent when reps get fired, yet there was no terms in the letter. He called again to make sure I cleaned out my storage unit, by the way I have a injured back.
I thought that the employer was not allowed to contact the employee and put pressure on them. I thought this was a california state law. The attorney isn't responding and this whole time that I would have the car until the case settled. After all I will have no way to get to treatments, physician appts etc.
I am really confused, am I supposed to just keep taking the calls and do what he wants? He didn't answer when I asked if I was getting fired. I thought my WC attny should be protecting me until a settlement is reached. Please help.
Please help... sorry if this is a common topic but I couldn't find it in searches.
