## - Salaried Employees Time-Loss Benefits

1. Time-loss benefits are paid at 66 2/3 percent of your weekly wage, not to exceed a state mandated maximum. (The maximum is set by law and changes each year.) The District’s workers’ comp. carrier calculates and pays all time-loss benefits.
2. Time-loss benefit checks are sent directly to you every two weeks and are not taxed.
3. Workers’ comp. time-loss benefit payment amounts are deducted from your regular paycheck if you are being paid from sick leave, vacation or paid leave.
4. Time-loss benefits do not need to be repaid even if your claim is denied.
5. Sick leave time is added back into your bank of sick leave days based on your time-loss benefit (see #2 below).

How Time-Loss Benefits Are Calculated

1. Time-loss benefits are determined by calculating your daily rate of pay (annual salary divided by assignment days) and paying the state-mandated maximum percentage of your daily rate. (The benefit is calculated and paid by the District’s workers’ comp. carrier.)
Example: Annual salary of \$33,137.00 divided by 261 assignment days = a daily rate of 126.96. The daily rate is multiplied by 5 days (\$634.80) for one week and the 66 2/3 state mandated maximum of that amount (\$423.22) is paid in benefits. (This example uses the 1999 66 2/3% state-mandated maximum.)
2. Sick leave days added back to your sick leave bank are calculated by dividing your time-loss benefit payment by your daily rate of pay and multiplying that amount by the number of hours you work per day.
Example: Your weekly time-loss benefit payment of \$423.22 is divided by your daily rate of pay of \$126.96 equaling 3.33. The result (3.33) is multiplied by the number of hours you work per day. If you work 8 hours per day, in our example you will have 26.67 hours (3.33 x 8 hrs.) of sick leave added back.
