A: Every time you get work restrictions, take them to your employer. If they have work available, then be sure you are doing the best you can within your work restrictions. As long as your work injury is compensable and the reason you are terminated is not your fault, then you will remain entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If you are not under an Award, then you will need to look for a job within your work restrictions.
If you find your employer is pressuring you to work beyond your known restrictions, you need to consider talking to us so we can advise you how to protect your rights and secure benefits.
