    The days need not be consecutive but you must have been taken off work by a doctor. If you just felt poorly and took the day off without seeking medical treatment or having a doctor state that you could not work, WC isn't going to cover the time.

      Doctor's Approval

      Not sure of your state laws, but in Calif...First and far most, where your ER is in a Medical Provider Network, the MPN must be the doctor that has authorization to dismiss you from work. Not unless you go to an "emergency room", when you have "no choice" but to be seen my the emergency. You cannot just go to "any" doctor and get authorization to miss work. Okay that being said. Let's say you go to the MPN doctor's at 2am March 31 doctor's say's you cannot return to work for this day, return to work following day. The entire day of March 31 is considered one full day for means of TTD. Although you worked from 8am to 1:30pm, this is for ER leave purposes. But for WC purpose the entire day is counted if Doc's sends you home. Hope this helps.

        Every states laws are different.
        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.

          That would not apply to the OP. It is only true in CA.
