I was injured in an explosion at a power plant and was medi flighted with burns to both hands and back of head. In the explosion I was thrown and injured my back as well.
I am on workers comp and under the care of a wc physian with orders of no kneeling crouching crawling or lifting more than 5lbs. My company has since let our old management company go and hired a new one. This new company says that I have to complete a physical including lifting 50 lbs (which doc says at this time I cannot do) if I do not complete this physical by the 20th this month they said it will be my job , in other words. Wont have one.
What do I do?,
This seems wrong for them to be able to do this...... please advise me on what to do,
I am baffled.Ok, I am not working, I am out on workers comp injury. My compony I got injured at uses a management company. At the time of injury my company had management company A . Just recently they fired management compony A and have hired a new one. So my wc claim is with managentment company A. The new management company B , Is having all employees reapply and pass drug and physicals. Including lifting 50lbs... I am currently under doctors orders not to lift over 5lbs from my injury on may 29 2012 with this company.
