Can an employer impose home confinement restrictions while an employee is out on work comp?

I agree with the others: that is ridiculous. Talk to one of us so we can review the letter and see if this rises to the level of discrimination or other employment harassment issue. Consults are free and fees are capped at low 15% for workers comp. Wishing you all the best
I agree with Mr. Castillo. There is no such law. And to make that requirement, if they don't impose it on all employees out on medical leave (think heart attack, cancer, car accident, etc.) then they are violating LC. 132a.
Absolutely Not! This is pure employer harassment. As long as your doctor hasn’t restricted you from those everyday activities of driving, going to the store and leaving the kids at school, you have every right to do so. Seems like you need to consult with a workers compensation attorney to deal with this harassment and clarification of your rights within the workers compensation system. In addition, your bigger problem is the insurance adjuster. He and the employer will sometimes make it more difficult for you and get you to their bad insurance doctors who are in their pockets. I suggest you speak to a competent and experienced workers comp attorney.
