  • doctors notes

    hypothetical question....state is (would be) ne.....i've read many times on the board that doctors notes have no force of law except during (in reference to) fmla. ok, if a doctor sends you back to work on light duty (work comp or not), and the company decides that they will offer you such work (i understand they don't have to..), must that work fall within the limitations of the doctors restrictions, or can they "make" you work above your "restrictions", making the doctors note basically worthless.....

    The doctor does not run the employer's business. While it might be unwise to require work outside the doctor's restrictions, it does not violate any laws if they do.
    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.
