Forced to Go Back to Work - Workers Comp Info

Randy Appleton and Rick Shapiro, two Elizabeth City workers compensation attorneys, talk about a situation that may arise after an injured worker starts receiving benefits under the North Carolina Workers Compensation Act - when to go back to work.

Some injured employees have been ordered to come back to work by their employer. Let's be clear - your employer cannot force you to come back to work and resume all of your previous work responsibilities. However, if your employer has a job that is within your medical restrictions, you generally have a duty to do that job so you can mitigate your damages.
