Compensation on Lost Time
You may qualify for temporary total disability benefits or partial disability benefits if your case is compensable and appropriate medical documentation is submitted. Your adjuster will make this determination.
If you treated at a preferred provider, any lost time will be supplemented by FCPS. Otherwise, your time will be covered using your own available sick, personal, or vacation leave. Please see your Negotiated Agreements for details, same articles as listed above.
Returning to Work
After you seek treatment, your doctor will determine if you are able to work, and if you have restrictions on your work capabilities. This documentation must be submitted to the Benefits Office and your Supervisor immediately.
If your regular department can accommodate your restrictions, you will report to work as usual. If not, you must contact the Benefits Office for a temporary light duty assignment.
Please note that MABE will not cover time off if you fail to seek a temporary light duty assignment.
