    Follow your lawyers advice, show face, do your best and at least act like you want to work.
    There's no law saying you have to perform a 100%, the rules require you show up and put forth an effort.
    Whatever you do, DO NOT REFUSE TO WORK - you'll forfeit your claim.

    If the employer fails to accommodate or sends you home, you're then entitled to your full wage loss benefits.
