Workers' Compensation Leave Update, Effective 7-1-22
 
    As of July 1, 2022, any employee who misses time from work to attend a medical appointment to treat a
    work-related injury will not be entitled to receive Temporary Disability or wage-loss benefits. 
 
    A ruling of the Sixth District Court of Appeals in Skelton v. WCAB found that Temporary Disability Indemnity
    is intended to provide wage replacement only during a period where the employee is incapable of working.
    For this reason, any employee who attends a medical appointment for a work-related injury during work
    hours will be required to use sick-leave, vacation time or unpaid time off.
 
    The exception to this rule would be the need for the employee to attend a Medical Legal Appointment
    such as a Qualified Medical Exam or Agreed-upon Medical Exam.
 
    Please contact cgerken@mbusd.org if you have any questions on this update.
