If you accrue an absence due to work-related illness or injury, on the day of the accident or first medical attention, you will be excused from work without loss of pay. This time will not count against vacation time or sick leave. If you are able to return to work, you will continue to be paid during the period of time required to obtain medical attention related to the injury or illness. If unable to return to work, a regular administrative, service, and support staff employee will be granted an unpaid leave of absence.
If attending a Worker’s Compensation conference or hearing, you will be excused from work without loss of pay, vacation time, or sick leave.
