    Default Worker's comp in Maryland

    the hr lady is making me use sick time (40 hours, my total for the year) and then vacation time for the rest of the time I was out. she said that once I get the settlement from the ins company I can pay them back and recoup that time but who knows when that will be.

    Does this all seem right? why shouldn’t the company just front me my pay and then recoup the money from workers comp? I was on the job when I got hit in my car and broke my wrist.

    Default Worker's Compensation

    Is it that you would prefer that you remain unpaid for time missed that is covered by workers' compensation, until such time as your claim is approved? The workers' comp claim is yours, not theirs.

    No, I want to be paid for the time off. But do I have to pay the employer back when my wc claim is approved??

    You probably don't - you just won't get any credit back for the vacation time and sick leave if you choose not to pay your employer back.
