Sick time used as supplement
#1
My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Nebraska
My employer is using my sick/vacation leave to supplement my other 1/3 of the wage that Workers Compensation does not pay. Is this what is supposed to happen I didn't ask for them to do this. I just figured you only got the 2/3 of the wage and that was it. To date they have taken all my sick time and I am negative 37 hours all of my personal time and now are using my vacation time. Also, do I schedule my physical therapy appts on my own time? I didn't get hurt on my own time.
Thanks for the help you can offer.

are you covered by a collective bargaining agreement?
can you buy back personal leave?
your employer is in a better position to explain their policy.

leave time - how and when it's used - is not part of work comp benefits; only disability.

Oh wow! It is a small city municipality, I am part time. No bargaining agreement, no union. I am not sure about buying back personal leave. When all this started happening I asked them about it and they never told me how it worked. They also seemed confused on how it works. They told me to go to the Nebraska workers compensation website, I found nothing about this. Why would they care if I got paid my full pay? I was off work for rotator cuff surgery which consisted of 3 months.

I would suggest checking out your employee handbook. I worked for a community college and remember a policy in my employers handbook covering something similar to this.
