What If I Accept A Light Duty Assignment When I Return To Work?

« Previous


If you accept a light duty assignment while recovering from a serious health condition, you are not considered to be on FMLA leave. The result is that if you are doing a light duty assignment at the end of the 12-month leave year period that your employer uses to calculate FMLA leave, you will lose your right to restoration to your regular job after the end of the year. For example, if your employer uses a calendar year as the 12 month leave year, if you are still doing light duty on December 31, as of January 1 you will not have a right to be reinstated to your original job.
