I'm working for a bank as an officer for the last 20 years.
Recently i underwent a surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome . After 2 months of mefical leave i reported for duty. Currently i'm required to attend physiotherapy 4 times a week which starts at 3.30 pm Monday to Thursday which meand i have to leave the office at 3 pm. After attending for 2 weeks, yesterday my manager informed me that i have to utilise my annual leave to attend the physio session. If i were to utilise my leave, i can only attend physio for a maximum of 20 days before exhausting my leave whereby i need to attend physio for the next 6 months. Isn't this a violation of employees medical benefits? Please help.

Is this a doctor mandated physiotherapy and is medically necessary and compulsory, in terms of the frequency or duration? Or is it just something that you wanted to do, so that you recover faster? Do you also have alternatives - eg to do the physio on weekends or on your own?
