Legal Question

Asked on: 8/29/13, 7:18 pm

I am a 40 hr week 8 hour day employee. I was injured on job and out for 6 weeks because they did not have "light duty". I was released to return to work full duty and was back at work over 2 weeks when I was called into office and told that the 8 hour day restriction on my release to full duty could not be accomodated and I was sent back out on workers compensation. Even though I rarely have to work more than 8 hours, they said because of that limitation I could not work. The max workers comp is $500 per week where I make $1200 per week working. So they are killing me financially. Is there anything that I can do? My injury was a severely sprained ankle. Reason for restriction to 8 hour day is that it swells and still gets very sore when I am on it all day.
