PTO use for work-related injuries not covered by WC
Do you require employees to use their PTO or take time unpaid for anything a Worker's Comp policy doesn't cover for lost wages?
Example: WC doesn't cover lost wages for anything less than 7 days and the employee is out for 3 days for a work-related injury.
Do you require they use PTO or take the time unpaid, or do you pay them the 3 days wages?
What if the employee is out for 3 weeks (15 working days) due to a work-related injury? WC pays the employee for 8 days, do you require PTO or unpaid time for the other 7, or do you pay the normal wages?
Thanks for your feedback. Really looking forward to seeing how other companies handle this.
