Question: An employee reports wrist pain while on the job. A medical professional determines the employee was born with an abnormal bone condition in the wrist and opines that the job duties aggravated the condition. The medical professional prescribes a permanent job transfer along with over-the-counter ibuprofen. Company leadership seeks a second opinion from a different occupational health doctor and the second doctor’s report reflects the same as the first doctor; a permanent job transfer is required for the employee. The employee returns to work and is put into a training program for a new permanent job. Is it recordable?
