Disability (WCOMP)

Any full-time employee who suffers injury or illness at work will be granted, upon proper investigation and authentication, up to twelve (12) months of leave with full pay for each incident. At the end of the first thirty (30) days and again following each thirty (30) day period thereafter, the director of human resources may require the employee to be examined by competent medical authority to determine the employee’s entitlement to full disability leave. Disability leave shall only be used when an employee has experienced an on-the-job injury. For time reporting purposes, employees shall use WCOMP on the timecard. See the Workers’ Compensation and Paid & Unpaid Time-off Benefits sections of this handbook for more information. For complete details, refer to CAO Policy 53: Disability Leave, Workers’ Compensation Claims, and Coordination with Family Medical Leave.
