No, the adjuster or employer must abide by the restrictions completely, if they cannot, you should be out of work and receiving benefits. You could consider filing a Form 28U but I would suggest you schedule a face to face consultation with an experienced workers' comp attorney. This can be complicated stuff and having an advocate that knows the law on your side will certainly help!
