    The person who gives the FCE knows who "butters his bread".
    He's gonna do whatever UPS tells him because if he doesn't he'll lose UPS as a client.
    Did the FCE accurately reflect the "essential functions" of your job?
    Is it possible to get a second opinion?

    BTW, it's no skin of the FCE guys nose if you fail...he's still gonna get paid.

    Medium duty. Nothing over 50lbs and nothing over 8 hours.

    Has anyone mentioned "work hardening" or would the company prefer to get rid of you?

    I have been through work Harding twice in my career. One in 2005 (Disk) and one in 2015 (Soft Tissues, Muscles). Both times it worked but the Doctor thinks that my current muscles have givin up.

    So technically it a loss of trade injury I think I talked to a guy and he said don't lie to the arbitrator and maybe you can get a job at the union. And you have to go through the ADA process

    I'm not sure I've ever heard of that.
    I wonder if a physical therapist or an exercise physiologist would agree?

    The reason he gives a discount is because he was once a preloaded. He told me that he was treated so badly that he swore he would help all Upsers in the future.

    Shows you something when a lawyer gives you a "discount rate" when you are a UPS employee.

    I heard a guy at my building was on and off of comp he blew out his knee was over compensating on other knee and blew that one out. Was out for like a year and the company gave him half a million to roll away in a wheel chair and never return. He was close to 25 years of service when he left.

    Well they bought me out. I truly wish I could give details but I am not allowed. But some advice, get the best Workers Comp lawyer that you can find. I was able to. Good luck to all that are still working. Do you best but FOLLOW THE CONTRACT. It is you only hope to survive.

    As my last words, I will paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King. Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty I am free at last.
