Can an employer not accept a drs note because you did not go into the office

San Diego, CA |

I suffer from migraines and I have all the medication at home it isn't very often that I miss work but when I do my dr gives me a note my employer (after accepting these for several years) will no longer accept them. but did accept a note from another employee last week that wasn't seen in an office

  1. Although this is not specifically a workers' compensatoin, in Georgia, there is no requirement that you see a doctor in order for that doctor to legally disable you. That would particularly seem to be true in a situation where you have a long standing relationship with the doctor.
