  • Workmans comp Alabama

    Does my employer have to give me my same job back after I return from workmans comp. They have offered me the same position on another shift. Can they do this or do they have to give me my same shift back

    How long, in total, were you out?
    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.

      approximately 4 weeks

        Did the time you were out fall under FMLA?
        If so, then you must be restored to the same shift unless you would have been transferred to the different one regardless of taking leave
        I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
