Thank you for the information. As the Site TOS and notices say, this is not a legal advice or legal opinion Site. Since we cannot form an attorney-client relationship with our customers we can only provide legal information. So, if you need an actual opinion or advice for this specific situation, you will need to consult with a local employment law attorney with whom you can form an attorney-client relationship. If you though just want to discuss the law in general, I can do that with you. If you do, then can you tell me if this employee was drug tested under a written employer drug testing policy and also, has their doctor released them for full duty? Finally, did they violate employer procedures or rules when they were hurt?
