Memphis, TN asked in Employment Law for Mississippi

Q: I work for Amazon, in January I injured my knee, tried several treatments nothing worked now I need a knee replacement.

I will miss 2 to 3 months of work making only 60% of my day? Do I not get paid my full pay because I injured my knee at work. I have already missed time from work for other treatments for my knee and was only paid for a few days missed. Some of the days I missed I wasn't paid for?

I'm on restrictions now waiting on my surgery to get approved what happens if I can't return to work without restrictions after surgery. Will I loose my job?
