After my work injury, does my employer have to accommodate my work restrictions?

No. Unless you employer has declared in writing that they will accommodate an injured employee’s work limitations. This may be done in an individual employee contract or employee handbook.
Exceptions to this rule are employers who obligate themselves to either hold an injured worker’s position open, or accommodate an injured worker’s limitations through an employee benefit program (usually outlined in an employee handbook) or through collective bargaining (union) or individual employment.
