If I Am Unable To Return To The Type Of Work I Did Before I Was Injured, What Happens?

If your employer offers you some type of employment, you should accept it. Failure to accept employment within your medical restrictions may result in a loss of benefits.

If the injured employee cannot return to regular work and is given a light duty job at a lower wage, benefits are 2/3 of the difference between the pre­injury wage and the current pay up to the maximum weekly limit. Cost of living supplements are not paid on temporary partial benefits.
