A metal loading dock plate crushed my foot and I've been out on workman's comp for almost five weeks. I got a paper from the US Department of Labor saying I'm on FMLA leave for 12 weeks. My question is what if I'm not ready to resume full duty at work by then, Ive already been told there is no light duty for me to do at my job. If my doctor writes a note saying my time needs to be extended past 12 weeks can they fire me since my FMLA time is up? I'm missing something here cause i already got my time off my second job extended because my doctor wrote me a note..........I'm on ADA leave from that job........got that extended to thirteen weeks off if need be. So if a doctor says you need the time off (especially cause you got hurt at that job) does that override the limit of FMLA leave? I have scoured many webpages and cant get an answer. If anyone can help me I be most appreciative. Thank you.
