Re: Accruing Vacation Time While Out on Workers Comp
It depends on company policy and practice. Generally, a non union company gives partial credit for each week worked. If the employee is on comp, they are not working and therefore would generally not meet the qualifications. In a company subject to a collective bargaining agreement, vacations and sick days are governed by the agreement and are generally vested under varying conditions. The law does not mandate employees be given paid sick days or vacation days. If your company has not dealt with this before, you are free to establish practice.
Teach a man to fish, you feed a village. Give a man a fish, the ever growing village demands free fish. We will now spend trillions on social services and SSI for people who don't know how to fish.
