    Default "Laid Off" While on WC

    Hi, dr. Said I might not work for 6 mths with hernieted disc. Was out for 2 weeks and got a letter from boss that said my position had to be filled. I am receiving weekly WC benefits and I think I'm getting close to being able to work again. I am almost certain my old job isn't gonna hire me back so can WC just cut off my weekly benefits if doc releases me even if I don't have a job to go to. This is very concerning to me.

    If you're sill on restrictions, released to work and your job isn't available or the employer fails to accommodate - your TTD should be reinstated.
    If you have no restrictions - apply for unemployment.
