In June I had a total knee replacement. In October while undergoing physical therapy I had a second surgery due to complications. I continued physical therapy as soon as possible after second surgery. My STD ends 24 December. I received a letter from the HR department indicating that if I was unable to return to work on that day my employment would be terminated on the 25th of December. My next DR's appointment is on the 20th of December. Will I be cleared for return to full duty, ?
According to the insurance that is handling the STD and transition to LTD they would work with my employer, the DR and myself on a light/limited work schedule to transition back to fulltime if that was deemed necessary by the DR. According to the letter I received that is not even being considered. At
