Workers' Compensation Leave. 22.1 Employees who suffer a work related injury or illness that is compensable under the state worker’s compensation law may select time loss compensation exclusively, leave payment exclusively or a combination of time loss compensation and accrued paid leave.
Workers' Compensation Leave. A leave of absence for up to the remainder of the school year will be granted to employees who are unable to continue to work for the Employer because of a work related injury or disease for which the employee is entitled to receive benefits under the Worker’s Compensation laws of the State of Michigan and is receiving payments from the Employer. At the completion of the initial period of the leave, the Employer shall grant an extension of the leave if the employee can present evidence from their treating physician that there is a substantial likelihood that the employee will be able to return to work during the period of extended leave, provided, however that an employee may not be on a worker’s compensation leave for a period longer than twenty-four (24) consecutive months. An employee whose leave ends prior to their being able to return to work will be considered to be on layoff with rights to return in accordance with the recall procedure. The Employer may require at reasonable times proof of a continuing inability to perform work for the Employer. Employees who incur a work related injury or disease for which they are receiving worker’s compensation benefits may utilize accrued paid sick leave days, charged to the employee’s sick leave account on a prorata basis to maintain the difference between the employee’s net take home pay based on their regular salary and the worker’s compensation benefits received. The receipt of this prorata sick leave does not convert the leave to a paid leave of absence that would entitle the employee to continue to receive paid insurance benefits, but the employer agrees to the health insurance coverage as specified in this agreement for a period of six (6) consecutive months after the commencement of the worker’s compensation leave.
Workers' Compensation Leave. A. When an injury is determined to be job-related in accordance with Article XII, a regular, limited-term, or probationary employee shall be placed on Workers' Compensation Leave. If such determination cannot readily be made, and all sick leave or 192 hours of annual leave has been applied to the absence, the employee shall be placed on Official Leave until a final determination is made.
Workers' Compensation Leave. An employee disabled due to a work related injury which is compensable under the Michigan Workers' Compensation Act shall be granted a workers' compensation leave of absence for a period of such disability or two years, whichever is less, and shall be entitled to receive the applicable workers' compensation benefits required by law. Medical and life insurance will also be continued for the duration of the period of disability or two years, whichever is less. Holidays, personal leave time and other employee benefits shall not accumulate or be paid during such compensation leave, except that an employee may use personal leave time for the first seven (7) non-compensated days of absence but shall be repaid such sums if the absence exceeds fourteen (14) days. Seniority shall continue to accrue during such leave.
Workers' Compensation Leave. If an employee is absent due to an industrial injury or occupational disease with the City, the employee shall receive current, full, regular pay of four-hundred, eighty (480) hours in any twelve (12) month period, without being charged any sick and/or annual leave. This leave shall be known as workers’ compensation leave. Employees who have used all sixty (60) days of workers’ compensation leave, or those with an industrial injury or occupational disease with a different employer may elect to receive current, full, regular pay and benefits from the City instead of the wage replacement benefits pursuant to NRS 616 and 617. In order to receive this payment, one-third (1/3) of the cost of the current, full regular pay must be charged first to an employee’s sick leave bank until it is exhausted to a zero (0) balance, and second to an employee’s annual leave bank until it is exhausted to a zero (0) balance. If the employee does not wish to utilize sick leave and annual leave in this manner, the employee must notify Human Resources and shall accept as full compensation the amount received pursuant to NRS Chapters 616/617. Once this election is made, it may not be changed. After all workers’ compensation leave, sick leave and annual leave are exhausted, the employee shall accept as full compensation the amount received pursuant to NRS Chapters 616/617. If applicable, the employee shall promptly endorse workers’ compensation checks and submit them to Human Resources. In no event shall an employee be allowed to receive workers' compensation as well as compensation from the City. When an employee is injured in the course of their employment, and initial treatment would place the employee in an overtime status, the hours during the initial outpatient treatment will be paid as overtime. For employees on evening or night shifts, any time spent for follow up, outpatient treatments will be paid as overtime. Employees injured in the course of their employment while working on a City holiday will receive the remainder of their shift paid at the worked holiday rate of pay.
Workers' Compensation Leave. Whenever faculty are absent from their duties as a result of on-the-job injuries covered by worker's compensation, they will be paid at the level of their salaries which would otherwise have been due but for said injury (less the amount of any worker's compensation award made for temporary disability due to said injury) for the period of six (6) months from date of injury, and no part of such absence will be charged to leave to which they may otherwise be entitled.
Workers' Compensation Leave. Any teacher who is absent because of an injury or disease compensable under the Michigan Worker's Compensation Law shall receive from the Board the difference between the disability benefits provided by the Michigan Worker's Compensation Law and the sick leave benefits herein provided. To the extent that the Board makes payment to a teacher for that portion of his salary not reimbursed under the Worker’s Compensation Law, said partial payments shall be charged pro-rata against the teacher's accumulated sick leave days.
Workers' Compensation Leave. If the employee has a work- related illness or injury that qualifies as a "serious health condition" under this policy, leave from the job for which the employee receives workers' compensation payments will be considered FMLA leave. The employer and employee may agree to have paid leave supplement worker's compensation benefits, i.e., where worker's disability compensation benefits provide replacement income for only a portion of the employee's salary.
