Employer Forcing You to Return to Work Before Recovery is Complete?

Colorado workers comp attorneyIs your employer manipulating the spirit of inclusive "return to work" policies? 

Is your employer forcing you to perform different tasks that utilize different skills - before your recovery is complete? Employees feel powerless to argue with their employers because they fear losing their jobs. This shouldn’t happen.

Colorado's Office of Risk Management and the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission both receive and process allegations and complaints when companies have violated fair employment practices. If you or a loved one has been forced back to work too soon following an on-the-job injury, consider speaking with an experienced workers' compensation attorney in Glenwood Springs.

Colorado workers comp attorneyThe state of Colorado recommends that all companies define their "return to work" policy and remind employees about the stipulations of that policy regularly. Having guidelines in place before workers get injured can make the transition back to work easier on the employee and can potentially bring about substantial savings for the employer by avoiding unnecessary workers’ comp benefits.

However, some employers manipulate the spirit of inclusive "return to work" policies. Learn more!
