      Packerfan, please have some patience. It's a weekend, and the volunteer responders are not on the board 24/7. I realize that your appointment is tomorrow but that doesn't mean there's going to be someone available on a Sunday afternoon who has the answer to your question and is willing to answer hypotheticals. You haven't even had the appointment yet, let alone been told that the IME has a different opinion that your doctor. Maybe he won't. You don't have to have a plan of attack JUST IN CASE before you even have the appointment. Take three deep breaths and relax.
      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.

          There's no reason to assume the IME doctor will release you to return to work. If you have been off work for some time and/or there's any question about the course of treatment you should be receiving, it's normal for the WC carrier to schedule an IME. You're getting ahead of yourself.

          If you are released for work by the IME doctor, post back for further information. (Be sure to include any info about the restrictions the IME has recommended and whether your employer has light duty work for you that fits those restrictions.)
