Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and my goal is to answer your question and provide you excellent service.
The employer can require a "clear to work" letter form your doctor, but your doctor can not give such a letter without your consent.
Likewise, your employer can refuse to return you to the work schedule if you do not consent to the release of the letter from the doctor.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
