Is it legal to be obligated to use my paid vacation/sick off for work related injury?
(08-01-2015, 03:47 PM)This is most likely not legal.  In fact, in Maryland this could be quite detrimental to your claim as it could create a statute of limitation issue if you are not directly paid the insurance company.  Depending on your employer and their relationship with the insurance company, you may be entitled to reimbursement of your sick time in the amount of 2/3 equivalent.  Your post is quite old but I hope this helps.

While on the job, I had a car accident (not my fault) and injured my knees and was told to go see the worker comp doctor. He has had me on physical therapy and on going doctors visits. 
My employer told me I have to use up all my paid vacation and sick time for all my leave before worker comp. I had 8-day paid vacation time + paid sick time saved. I may need 3-week off per my physician. 
I've received the paperwork about FMLA and it has been processed. 
Is it legal to be obligated to use my paid vacation/sick off for work related injury?
Can I get my 8-day paid vacation/sick time back once the FMLA has been approved?

Please help!
Thanks in advance!
Good Luck!
