ADA and FEHA require Employer to make reasonable accommodations if you are able to do the Essential Job functions. If you are unable to do the Essential Job functions of your position, with or without reasonable accommodation, you are not returning. Your job is only really safe for 12 weeks of FMLA, and after that they are actually fairly free to replace you.

If your Employer cannot accommodate your restrictions, your claim may involve a Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit, which is essentially a Coupon for retraining that has no real cash value. Hiring a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation would probably be a smart move for you.

Call George Corson and hire him or someone else trustworthy to help you. This forum is no substitute for your own good trusted lawyer like George. Good Luck!

I agree with Mr. Corson and Mr. Keener. Unfortunately, Mr. Corson is probably too far away and he does defense work but otherwise a good choice.

Find a good lawyer here at or at CAAA is the association for attorneys here in California who represent injured workers. Or you can call me for a referral. Good luck.
