Hello all, I am a part time loader at UPS and I recently injured my heel while I was at home. I visited the doctor who wrote me a note for 1 week of light duty. Friday I went to work with the note and I talked to my FT sup when I got there and showed him the note hoping I could get some light work. However, in return I got sent home. He said it was policy to send home anyone that has a doctors note stating an exception to their work conditions. (basically saying that if a doctor says I'm not 100%, I can't work) But I was willing, just not completely able. He said if I got injured off duty, then I can't come back till I'm better because I might re-injure my heel at work and that would come back on the company or if I got a release note from my doctor before the time frame was up. My question is, can I get payed for them sending me home and not allowing me to work until my doctor releases me? Like the whole week my doctor recommended me to stay off my foot. This seems pretty crappy to me if they can send me home when it isn't my decision to do so and not pay me. I'm not trying to get free money, I just want my foot to heal before I have to step it up a little bit for the peak season and need to know if I need to bite the bullet and get the note revoked, or if I can actually let my heel heal properly.
