    Yes in most jurisdictions. In some instances where the employee is capable of performing light-duty work which is not his usual job, the worker may qualify for temporary disability benefits if no suitable work is available. In instances where the injured worker is awaiting surgery and is capable of working a few hours at light duty, the worker is not precluded from receiving an award for temporary disability benefits.

    From the facts that you present the situation probably would have difficulty arising to a hostile work environment claim. It sounds like poor managerial skills by your supervisor and one that should be looked at by his/her superiors.

    If you are a member of a union I would suggest that you contact your union representative to review the terms of the labor contract. If you have a contract of employment you should review that with an attorney to determine if there was breach or if there was discriminatory action by you employer that was actionable.
