My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Alabama
I received a disability rating of 15%, but was able to perform within the guidelines to retain my position with my employer. That was Five years ago. I am now having physical challenges again directly related to my workers comp injury that occurred five years ago. During this time, my employer has increased production standards. My question is:
Does a disability rating of 15% only apply towards the configuration of a monetary settlement for workers comp, or am I eligible to seek protection under the ADA, as I am finding it very difficult to maintain current company standards. I only have a few years til I qualify for my pension,and fear I will not make it. Thanks to all who volunteer at this site.
