Ok, I am looking online (google) but im not finding exactly what I need. Basically, I was told from the WC rep that I am going to be able to go to work on modified duty per the WC doc (which I saw for about 7-10 min). My orthopedic doctor (non WC) put me off work until June 20th. I don't feel like I can go back to work even on mod. duty. The WC rep scheduled my follow up appt. for 3 weeks out!! (June 15th) I would rather not go back until I can talk to the WC doctor and find out about my treatment.
My question is.. since a medical doctor put me on leave until June 20th can I stay off work even if the WC doc is saying I can go back to work now on modified duty???
I would think not since it is a doctor who put me out, but since this WC stuff is so complicated I figure there is some kind of stipulation that I HAVE to do what the WC doc says. I don't even care if it is unpaid, I would rather be unpaid then make anything worse in my back by going back to work.
Thanks in advance!!!!
