My employer contacted me today stating that I have to return to work on Monday or I will be fired, because my first doctor released me for light duty. However, my second, current doctor who scheduled my surgery has not yet released me. Help?
I was hurt on the job back in March 2010 and have been on workmans' compensation since then. The first doctor I saw told me to do therapy for a few months and see how I progressed. The therapy was working slowly, so he sent me on light duty in August. I returned to work in August, and then was scheduled for an MRI where I was diagnosed with needing surgery. I was then referred to another doctor who scheduled my surgery right away in October. I have been under this new doctor's care ever since, and they have not released me yet.
