  • Vacation while on WC? North Carolina

    My husband has been out of work due to an injury since March 3, 2007. His surgery was April 4, 2007. His doctor has told him and his nurse/case manager that it will be at least six months before he is able to return to work. My husband had put in for his vacation for the week of July 4th prior to his injury and was told he could have that week. I'm wondering if WC will still be paid for that week since he was technically supposed to be on (unpaid) vacation that week? He had asked the nurse about it and she said that his vacation time would NOT affect (effect?) his WC checks. As long as he was still able to do his therapy while he was away. So far, the company has been GREAT about everything but I just want to be sure. Can anyone help clear this up for me?

    Assuming he is unable to work, it doesn't matter what he is doing that week, he would get TTD.

      No, he's not able to work. He tore his rotator cuff and ripped a tendon apart trying to release a brake on a postal cart. One of the first questions they asked us was if we would be getting an attorney. We told them no, of course not. He just wanted to get this fixed and get back to work as soon as possible. (My husband does NOT like being idle!) I was just concerned that there was some funny loophole somewhere about him going on vacation while he is hurt.

        Temporary Total Disability. The pay you receive from the WC carrier while unable to work because of the injury.

            It's quite alright. I am just so used to using the acronyms I don't even think about it any longer. WC loves their acronyms. A law firm I frequently work with even created what they call a "Comptionary" to keep them all straight.
