    Default Forced to Take Medical Retirement After an Injury

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: MI.
    I was injured 1-7-2010, had surgery 2010, 2011 and a TKR Oct. 2012. I returned to work after the first 2 with restrictions, and have been off for 1 yr.from the TKR, needing 1 more surgery and hoping to return. I was informed by the county that per our contract I must accept a medical retirement as the contract states that after 1 yr. from the date of injury the employee, if still injured, must accept a medical retirement. They let me return for 3 yrs. off and on between surgeries. To save my job I requested a leave of abscense, which work comp is covering 80%, and the 20% is being paid from my sick bank. Did'nt they (my employer) set a presadance with letting me return over the yrs. I dont think its right to force a medical retirement now, per the contract they should have made me leave 1-7-2011. Work comp is not fighting me, what should I do?

    Please allow my input on your post: The unions are destroying themselves by taking political sides and ramming their left wing agenda down union members throats. Instead of acting as a UNION for all, no matter what political beliefs an individual member has, Unions end up alienating any union member that does not agree with their support for Obama and his administration.

    I also think that actually it would be nice if this forum just concentrate on WC issues and not on what I consider 'bull'.
