Question: One of our employees went on long-term disability (LTD) with a back injury. While on LTD he began working a part-time job while collecting benefits. When his benefits ran out, he contacted us for a return-to-work date. He has been away from the job for three years, with no contact. Are we still obligated under the accommodation principles to bring him back?
