EBAA Workers Compensation

EBAA   Workers Compensation (See KFD)                                 EBAA-1

           The district will participate in workers compensation as required by current statute.  The combined workers’ compensation benefits and salary received under allowed sick leave, or other available leave, shall not exceed one full day's pay.

               All employees of the district shall be covered by workers compensation.  Workers compensation coverage is provided for all employees regardless of assignment, length of assignment, and/or hours worked per day.  Benefits are for personal injury from accident or industrial diseases arising out of and in the course of employment in the district.

               The workers compensation plan will provide coverage for medical expenses and wages to the extent required by statute to those employees who qualify; however, the amount of workers compensation benefits and sick leave benefits shall not exceed a regular daily rate of pay.  An employee using sick leave, or other available leave, in combination with workers compensation will be charged for one full or partial day of sick leave, as provided for in the sick leave policy or the negotiated agreement, for each day of absence until the employee’s sick leave is exhausted.

               Any employee who is off work and drawing workers compensation shall be required to provide the clerk of the board with a written doctor’s release before the employee is allowed to return to work.  In addition, should the employee be released to return to work by a doctor and fail to do so, all benefits under sick leave shall be ended and those benefits under workers compensation shall be restricted as provided by current statute.
