    In all likelihood the Department will rely on this IME to close your claim. Luckily you have an attending physician who appears willing to go to bat for you. Regardless, I think you would be wise to contact a workers' compensation attorney in preparation for litigation over the likely imminent Department order that will close your claim.

    Being honest and straightforward is always the best policy and won't burn you in the long run. Don't worry about meeting with your supervisor. Just make sure that your statements about the incident remain consistent. With the little facts that you provided, it seems that this could either be an industrial injury (date, time, and specific facts of the injury are known) or an occupational disease (a condition that occurs and progresses over time due to the nature of your work).

  • Is it illegal for my employer to alter my time card without my permission?

    My employer put whiteout over my time stamp on Monday and then hand wrote the date and time.I don't know what to do about it.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Before seeking legal recourse, I would suggest bringing the altered time card to your employer's attention to see what their basis is for making such a change. This may be a misunderstanding that can easily be cleared up. If it isn't cleared up, at least this will allow you to gain knowledge of what evidence you may be up against should you decide to pursue legal action.

  • Can an employer access claim infromation from an L&I website without my consent?

    They do not have my permission to access that infromation. Only permitted person/s is the doctor office.

    Kevin’s Answer

    As the employer they have an interest in the L&I claims process and they may choose to take an active role. They do not need your consent to view information on the L&I website and may submit documents of their own should they want to dispute your claim.
