I was out of work with a back injury for 8 days. My doctor gave me a note to return to work with restrictions. My employer refuses to allow me to return. Can they do this?

This may depend on the specific surrounding facts and circumstances, information you have not included, perhaps including: the number of employees employed by the company, its stated reason for not allowing you to return, the nature of your employment (e.g., at will, contract employee, etc.), the nature and extent of your injuries, among other things. You might have a claim here, but more information is needed to advise you one way or the other. Feel free to contact me directly to discuss.
