Yes and No. If you are disabled by the medical provider, during the first week following
injury you may use accrued sick or vacation time, up to 40 hours. You may also qualify
for wage loss benefits under Worker’s Compensation, depending on the duration of your
disability. You may also choose to not use your accrued leave time.
Health insurance continues based on your job classification or union contract. You
are still responsible for your portion of the premiums.
