Im in Il, on workers comp for a umbilical hernia repair . Its been 6 weeks now, went through all proper steps to return to my job. my boss wont answer my calls or return them. I am MMI, and now out of TTD payments and no income. My WC lawyer says that he,s talked to their lawyer and cant get an answer if I am fired or when they will let me return to work. Also this job doesn,t pay into unemployment benefits. Now , my lawyer says he,s stuck. How do I fine out if I was fired while out on workers comp? and what should I suggest to my lawyer?
