You also have a workers compensation claim. Often time, insurance companies pressure employers to lay off injured employees to avoid ongoing exposure to WC wage loss payments. This often exposes the employers to ADA clams and Shick claims (where a nonunion employee is fired for making a WC claim). You should talk to an attorney before going back to work to make sure your medical situation is clear. Any attorney worth their salt will give free consults in the WC setting. Good luck.
