    Default Modified Job After Injury

    It seems to me that, ' sedentary work ' has given my employer the right to not have to modify my route/job in order to return to work. I thought it was their job to find any and every way to get me back to work? Am I wrong? I was told by my boss in exact words " We don't do that " then he proceeded to tell me of all the new hired employees since my injury and how any time they ( the Boss ) hears 'sedentary work' they do not modify jobs, I must be able to come back to work able to complete the job I was hired for. Is this true? Is there a federal law act that I can read about this?

    If the employer fails to accommodate your restrictions for any reason, you're entitled to wage loss benefits.
    Contact the carrier and inform them of your employers position and demand benefits - if they fail to do the right thing, consult and retain legal counsel.
