What if a light-duty reassignment never seems to end?

Q: “An employee has experienced a work-related injury and the physician returned the employee back to work with restrictions.

The employee works in a light-duty capacity eight hours per day, but not in the position that the employee was hired for. What is the employer’s next step?” – Anonymous, Virginia
