What if your company does not have light duty work and cannot create light duty work?

They have to pay your full workers compensation benefits, also called temporary total disability, or TTD, just as if your doctor said you could not do any work because of the injury.

One thing to watch out for if you have a Virginia workers compensation case: if you are not under an Award, you must look for light duty work within your restrictions (called marketing your residual capacity) even if you will be released to your regular duty job with your company ina short time.
