I need some answers. - dawnnanette - 02-29-2008

I hurt myself last month. I reported it and I've seen their doctors.
I missed a day of work this week because of pain. What I need to know is do I have to use a vacation day to make up my pay?
I'm not sure how this works. Please help me.

we need to know your state but in most states you have to be off 7 days with a docs excuse before they start to pay

In Indiana you have to be off work for 7 days before monetary benifits begin.

Also, even if you missed work more than 7 days, it can't just because of pain. The doctor has to take you off work.
