I was injured fairly severely at work almost 7 months ago. Badly broken foot, surgery, still doing PT and further surgery at some point to remove the hardware Zero issues with medical care or WC. But I have now been released twice for light duty and kept getting vague excuses from the only two people I actually have contact with ( shift manager and Risk management) why I am not back at work. I still have pretty severe flexibility and balance issues with the foot BUT the promised 6 weeks of light duty would help immensely. Basically can't move very fast and no ladders etc I am also concerned that I won't be able to do the job since I have not been working for 7 months. I was literally one week shy of making seniority which is sucking as I am now 7 months on hold towards time counted towards benefits. Not once has the union checked on me even though I called them several times in the beginning. They also don't seem to have much in the way of clear cut procedures and information in place for the employee after an injury. What I am getting from WC is killing us financially. Is all of this SOP?
