  • CA SDI calculations & Vacation pay for teachers on school year contract

    Originally posted in a different forum
    For charter & independent schools in CA (that participate in SDI):
    1. How does one calculate the daily earnings for teachers on school year contract: If the teacher earns $38,000 for a 190 day school year, is the daily rate $200 or $146.15 (based on 52 weeks)
    2. For teachers who get 12 (or 24) paychecks a year either because they choose to or because the school by default, spreads the 10 month wages to 12 months: Is the pay for the two summer months considered by CA State EDD as Vacation pay or regular wages? The distinction is very important for SDI payment in case an employee is disabled during the summer months when the school is closed. If those payments are considered wages then the teacher is not eligible for any SDI benefit as there is no loss of wages. But then they are not working during those months so they are getting deferred earnings (sort of). Although schools do not call it vacation, it is in one sense vacation. Also the disabled employee is loosing the opportunity to work (elsewhere? or for summer programs) or enjoy vacation during the summer months.
    3. Can EDD contest how a school chooses to consider the pay during summer or are there any specific guidelines.

    Please do not double post. The responders here are volunteers who do this on their own time when they get a chance. All the responders read all the questions in the appropriate forums - you will not get more answers, better answers, or different responders by posting multiple times. If no one has responded to your first post yet, it's because no one who has yet logged on since you first posted it knows the answer. Please have some patience and don't make the responder's job more difficult by spreading the questions around, okay?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      I realized I should have posted in a different forum

      but am not sure how to delete the original post.
      & your point is well taken. Will be careful in future.

        We're really not all that picky here about posting in the "correct" forum. As long as there is some connection, you're fine. It would be one thing if you posted a Family Law question in the Labor Law forum - then a Mod would probably move it for you. But the difference between the HR forum and the Disability forum, for your question, just isn't that significant. Either is appropriate, either is fine.

        I don't want you to feel that you're being picked apart - that's not my intention. Just explaining how we operate.
