3 day waiting period
Hello all

So injuries that result in less than ten days of workers comp have a 3 day waiting period.

Do you guys pay this time as just regular pay or do you have the employee use sick time/vacation time etc?

Thanks

Hi Mahrir,

I'm bumping this up for you , as it's getting buried. Hopefully someone in 'the know' can answer you.

RE: 3 day waiting period
Each company has their own policies regarding this. If the injured worker is out more than the 10 days, WC will go back and pay the first 3 days. Some employers as a gesture of good faith and loyalty to their employees do pay regular salary. Some allow the injured worker to use their sick/vacation time. It is usually a matter of company policy.

RE: 3 day waiting period
The length of the waiting period and when it's paid by the work comp carrier depends on a particular states laws. Some states have 7 days others pay the 3 days after 14 or 7. It all depends on which state you are refering to.
How the non-compensible time is handled is outside of work comp law and up to union contract or each employer as kate says.
