Can I be denied overtime because I have a work comp injury in Missouri?

I recently had surgery on my elbow and it is through worker comp. My company is denying me any overtime due to my injury although I'm working regular time. Can they deny me overtime hours?

I am an attorney registered only in Ohio. In Ohio, a denial of overtime because you have a workers comp injury would be workers comp retaliation. Check with a Missouri employment or workers comp lawyer to see if that is the case there.
