Denied overtime while on light duty

-Work 12 hour shifts--consequently, one day every two weeks I have an 8 hour day in order to work 80 hours every two weeks
-Was injured on duty
-Was denied regular overtime on my last 8 hour day
Question: The department has a policy in force that denies overtime to anyone in a modified/light duty status regardless of what type of modified duty i.e. pregnancy, minor injury, major injury, etc. Is this discrimination? At this point in time, my particular injury (wrist sprain) isn't covered by ADA.

overtime or discrmination

Unfortunately, I find your question unclear. I do not understand if you are getting overtime pay before your injury (standard is typically 40 hours a week, not 80 every two weeks) or if you are not getting it now or you are being denied work hours now. Perhaps you have an overtime claim from BEFORE your injury. If your complaint is that your hours are reduced because of injury it is hard for me to give an opinion since I do not typically deal with discrimination issues, only overtime pay issues.
