Depends: That depends on why your are off work. In general with an illness or injury that caused your to miss work, you should be recovered enough that you can perform your regular job or, if available, a light duty substitute job, safely and effectively without risk of injuring yourself again.

It depends: If you've had an injury or illness your employer may want to get an evaluation from a doctor saying what restrictions you have for your job or that you are able to perform all duties.
