    no union . no contract? Means he can fire you if you refuse.Ohio is a right to work state. better go if you can.
  5. This is my suggestion to you. If your doctor has written you off work for a certain period of time, then by all means try to honor that. However, if your place of employment has a return to work policy and they are able to accomodate the restriction that your doctor has put in place, then I would go back to work only after you have received the ok form your doctor stating what you can/cannot do. If your workplace has a modified duty program, they are required to honor your restrictions. if and oly if you receive a release form your doctor. if he does not relase you, the you do not have to work.. but if he does and you do not return to work, they can fire you... if they have a program for modified duty.
