Disability Leave

If you are injured on the job and your injury is covered by Workers' Compensation, the state allows you time off with pay to cover:

  • The first 40 hours of time away from work to seek medical treatment/therapy or to get well.
  • An additional 48 hours of time away from work for medical appointments and therapy, if you have written documentation from the state's authorized Workers' Compensation medical provider that you are still under medical treatment.
