If you have been properly offered a light duty job, they can stop your checks if you refuse to attempt. The law has recently changed and there are more questions than answers at this time. If the employer serves you a form WC-240, it is required to have a date, time and place for you to show up to work a light duty job. With the form WC-240 should be a WC-240a (Job analysis), this should have all of the work duties you will be asked to preform in your light duty job. The WC-240a will also be signed off on by your authorized treating physician. This can be quite technical so if you have been served a WC-240 you should reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney to discuss what your options are.
