Who judges what a worker returning from injury can physically handle?

09/08/2020

Q. “We have a long-time older employee who has been out on workers comp since 8/20/19 due to an injury. The company has some concerns about potential risks in bringing this employee back to work. He has been released to full duty. Do we have to restore him to the same position, or can we legally offer him another position that will not be so physically challenging for him?”
