    Default Accured Time While on Worker Comp

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Texas
    We have an employee that was off for 1 1/2 year on workers comp. and has returned back to work. The employee is requesting paid vacation time? Do we have to pay for the vacation time off since he was not actually working but was on workers comp.? We don't have a specific in our HB about accuring time while on WC.

    Not in your state. In Texas, you only have to pay out vacation time if your written policy says you will.

    I'd check with your WC carrier to see if it would be considered part of lost wages.

    I'd check your accrual policies for those on unpaid leave (do you accrue for those on FMLA? for example). WC is generally considered unpaid leave since payment is coming through WC "lost wages" rather than payroll/time worked. In most cases/employer policies, I'd say that it would not have accrued (except possibly during the 12 weeks of protected benefits under FMLA if you don't have those specifically written out)....
