How Can I Prove That I Am Unable To Return To Work?

After an accident or injury occurs at work, it is insufficient to merely advise your supervisor that you do not feel well and need to take off a few days to recover from your injuries, to qualify for temporary disability benefits. Of course, if your company has a sick leave policy, you may be entitled to receive sick pay, even without a doctor’s note. However, you may not collect workers’ compensation temporary disability unless you receive an “out of work” note from a doctor, who confirms that your inability to work is related to the work accident. You should transmit the medical note to your employer, but be sure to keep a copy of it.
