In brief: Depends
On the type of work you do.
If you have an office type job that allows you to sit you can probably work.

some occupations will not allow you to wear a walking cast for insurance regulation purposes.

That would depend on the type of work you do.
If your work involves a lot of walking or climbing, you might want to request an alternate duty temporarily; if you're walking only occasionally, there shouldn't be any problem. Just don't be in a hurry and be careful with steps and wet/snowy/icy walkways.
