If you were injured at work, talk to your doctor. Tell your doctor about all the symptoms that you are still experiencing. If you are recovering from a Missouri or Kansas on-the-job injury, you should listen to your doctor's advice. If your doctor says that you should not to work because to your injuries, then do not work - even if your employer is pressuring you to come back to your job.
I was injured in a Kansas City workplace accident and now my employer wants me to return to work. I still feel pain and I don't feel ready. What should I do?
After an injury, your doctor may initially release you to work on a light duty or a restricted status. If this is the case for you, ask your employer if they have a position that fits your restrictions.
Your boss can not fire you for following your doctor's orders.
