    Default Still Working Light Duty

    I was injured on a registry job (part time) and was moved to a light duty position at my regular job. I was paid the difference until an IME discharged me and have asked for a hearing. I could not survive without the light duty but fear it will be a reason to dismiss the case?

    I'm not sure i see a question here.
    why do you think it'll be dismissed?
    please give a case citation or comp law reference for that as I never heard of such a provision.

    I don't know what i'm talking about, dismissal. I heard that if you work at all I'll lose the case. does working light duty hurt my work comp case?

    If the doctor said you can't work and you are accepting payments for not working, but you really are, then you have more to worry about then a dismissal.
    Talk to your doctor about your light work. Make sure it's within your restirctions and report your earnings to comp so they can offset your disability payments and you should be fine.
