My doctor released me to light duty, but my employer is insisting I do more strenuous work. What should I do?

If your treating physician has approved a light duty job and given you specific limitations, it is important that you stick to the limitations. If an employer insists that you do work that is more strenuous than your doctor authorized, it is usually best if you simply remind the employer of the restrictions and refuse to do the more strenuous work. Of course, this can cause conflict with the employer, but to do otherwise risks further injury.

Remember, every situation is different. It is important to consult with a qualified workers compensation attorney about the specifics of your case before taking any action.
