i was not allowed to return to work after prolonged sickness. Can they prevent me from returning to work, unpaid for 3 weeks?

My name is David Vaughan and I'm an employment lawyer with Samfiru Tumarkin. Your employer is permitted a reasonable amount of time to determine a position for you to return to after a prolonged illness. While each case will be determined based on its facts, the time it takes should not take more than a few weeks. I recommend you contact our firm to discuss the matter in more detail and determine how we can assist you.
