This is Greg Boles on the third tactic used by some employers to harass injured workers.  Sometimes you will return to work and your employer will tell you to not to do anything heavy.  Then they will ask you to perform work that can't be done unless you violate your medical restrictions.  I once represented a steel worker with a 20 lb lifting restriction.  His employer told him not to do anything heavy but then provided him with two inexperienced assistants who could not possibly get all the product out to the loading dock in time.  There was no way this job could be done unless he violated his restrictions.
