My knee was bothering me and I went to see the doctor. My work said I needed a doctors release before I could work again. After a few days off and medication, my doctor gave me a letter of release. I told my employer that I am not placing this as workmans comp claim. Now my employer says I have to see their physician and get a release. I am not being paid for the additional time off waiting to see their doctor. Are they allowed to do this?
