Answer: Whether you can hand in your resignation is more complicated than a simple yes or no.
As your workers’ compensation claim progresses and you are on the path to recovery, you will be thinking about your future either in the role that you had before your accident or a completely new role.
While many people go back to their previous roles seamlessly, there are some cases that affect the potential of an individual resuming their positions. After time off work due to an injury, some fear the risk of ill feelings towards them or potentially unsupportive employers – this can make the idea of returning to work daunting. In complex cases, people find their injury has left them unable to perform the physical demands of their previous role but want to return to meaningful employment, however the thought of starting a whole new career can be equally daunting.
