What is required of my employer if I am unable o return to my normal job duties before the work related injury? I am a truck driver/heavy eq. operator and was involved in an accident resulting in having a 2 level spinal fusion. I know that I will not be able to continue this line of work and would like to know if my employer is obligated to either retrain me for another position or let me go with some type of compensatory package. The problem is that the facility/location in which I work is relatively small with regard to staff and I'm uncertain as to what, if anything, they would have me do that would coincide with my limitations. Thank you!
