Q: What happens if I can only return to work with restrictions?
A: If you are released back to work with restrictions by your treating physician, it will then be up to the client facility to determine if they have a light duty position available for you that you can perform with the restrictions indicated. If you are unable to perform your duties as contracted, the client may need to find a replacement contractor that can perform those required duties at 100%, since as a traveler you are already filling in due to a shortage at the facility. Your current contract may be terminated at the discretion of the client. (TOP)
