Employers routinely ignore medical reports of your treating doctor when demanding that you return to work. An employer does not have to rely on the treating doctor notes when making a determination whether to bring you back to work. The employer will follow the lead of the workers’ compensation insurance carrier and solely or substantially rely on an Independent Medical Examiner who saw you on one occasion. Is this fair? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Is this legal? UNFORTUNATELY YES. If you are having a problem like this please call Jason Krasno to discuss. Attorney Krasno can offer you sound legal advise to help overcome this hurdle in your case.
