  • Disability Leave & Returning to Work New Jersey

    I've been on disability since July because of kidney failure and I will be returning to work sometime in January. My employer has held my position for me even though they were no longer required to after 12 weeks. I'm not going to be able to return to my old position because of limitations from my doctor. Since I will be returning at a lesser position, I'm guessing my pay will also be decreased? I'm expecting that it will be but I would just like to confirm.


    Thanks in advance!

    No one knows what your employer will do, but based on what you have said, it is legally possible for the employer to take this action.

      That will be your employers decision.

        Agree with the above. Or, to put it another way, we don't know if your pay WILL be decreased; we can tell you that your pay CAN legally be decreased.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          I have known of people who got a "demotion" & their pay was not deceased but it certainly can be.
