    Default Do I Still Get Work Comp Pay If There's No Light Duty Available from Employer

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Kansas

    I am a Gymnastics instructor on a military base and injured my self at work. I am 2 weeks post opp today and the Dr. has released me to return to light duty as of the 15th of this month. I am ancious to get back to work but my employer has infromed me that there is no light duty avaliable.

    My question is, if I am not able to return to my normal duties and my employer has no light duty work for me, do I still qualify to continue to recieve my workmans comp payments?


    Thank You

    In most if not all states, yes.

    My work at one point said no more light duty. I told my Dr and L&I right away and have been there since Feb. To date I've CTS both arms and neck (bulging disks) Oct 24

    If there is no light duty available your comp benefits will continue till you return to your full duty release....check though with your claim specialist with your light duty restrictions & non accommodation by your employer

    Thank You all for Your replys. I just needed to try and find out so I could figure out what to do about my bills if WC dosen't pay. I am scheduled to return to UR Regular Duty 1 Jan. So I don't have a disability or anything like that. Just need to heal completlety from my surgey so as to not do permanent damage to my ankle. Hopefully The state of Kansas is one of those states that will pay till I can return to UR Regular Duty.


    Thanks Again

    L&I hits them hard when they DON'T work with a IW
