I sprained my shoulder and have been out of work for 10 weeks. I was told by my employer if I could get them specific restrictions they would allow me to return....they have no light duty work so I have been off since injury. I got the exact return to work info they needed and it is specific as they asked. They will not return my phone calls or emails to come back to work. I have contacted my css and told her I have gotten no response she said just be patient. It's been a week how much longer should I wait. Do I need an attorney? I feel like they are stretching it our to meet my 12 week FMLA deadline where they can then get rid of me. I have 1 week left.
It would not hurt to consult with an employment attorney and see what your options are.

I agree with the other attorney's response. Most employment attorneys offer free consultations. Check to find out how you handle this situation.

My colleagues are both correct -- talk to an attorney who works in the field of employment law.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
