Returning to work after a workers' comp injury.

Under Georgia workers' compensation law, there is no requirement that an employer allow you to return to work if you are under restrictions following a workplace injury. However, if you are unable to return to work becuase of your injury, the insurance carrier is required to pay you weekly workers' compensation income benefits. An employer may provide light duty work as a means of reducing the amount of weekly workers' comp benefits owed to you by the insurance carrier. Employers sometimes make informal offers of light duty employmnet and sometimes employers will make an offer of employment on a WC-240. If you have any questions about returning to work following a workplace injury contact attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit our website at
