Workers’ Compensation Supplemental Leave

State employees receiving temporary total disability compensation due to a work-related injury may supplement this benefit pursuant to the OSHR Workers’ Compensation policy. After the employee is placed on workers’ compensation leave, the weekly benefit may be supplemented by the use of partial sick or vacation/bonus leave earned prior to the injury in accordance with a schedule published annually by the Office of State Human Resources. Reference the Office of State Human Resources website for more details.
