    UPS reported to Liberty Mutual that my first day of TAW was the 14th of june, but I noticed my paycheck that week had alot of money deducted...I had the OMS do an inquiry and payroll's response was that I was having deductions for TAW starting the 11th, so I guess they were trying to get out of having Liberty Mutual reimburse me for those days and work me for a few more day's!!!

    I've seen guys on TAW for 3+ months at my center. They really try to avoid having a lost time injury.

    Rainman Its all good.

    Supposed to be 30 days. The center gets hit with a one time charge of (I think) $8000 for each lost time injury. TAW charge is a few hundred. If they can extend the TAW it saves the center a lot of money. Like everything else at UPS, its driven by numbers.

    TAW cannot extend beyond 30 days not is the company required to offer it.

    It gets extended at my center. They make up the rules depending on who you are.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I was approved for 40 days TAW. Somwhere, I have the TAW letter UPS sent me nda.
  18. After 30 days, they have to make it a permanent job. Thats why the usually stop at 29 days.
