    Hello,
    Alberta employer. I have an employee who works in the warehouse so lifting heavy objects, works pallet jacks, and forklifts, etc.
    He hurt his knee and cannot do the physical aspects of his job for the foreseeable future.
    As an employer, what are our obligations?
     
    Thanks

    Depends on a lot of things:
    1. Did he take leave of absence;
    2. Has he filed for workers comp or disability benefits?
    If he’s at work and wants to work right now, you need to assess his current capabilities – the same if he isn’t working and plans to return to work.
