Vacation after worker's compensation


New Member
I have been on worker's compensation for over 2 years with back surgery. It looks like I will be returning before May 1. Does anyone know if I will be entitled to my vacation, sick, and optional pay for this year, since I will be returning before the end of this vacation period?

I believe that answer is YES! On the job injury doesn't reflect vacation ect.....Only pension vested credits! You retain all seniority!

Yes, if you come back before May 1st, you will be entitled to your 2007/2008 vacation and then after May 1st you will be entitled to your 2008/2009 allotment.

Not in the south. Health benefits paid for 1 year,comp pay for 2 years max. NO paid vacation when you return. You have the weeks still but you must make your own benny payments for those weeks.

I have almost the same question. I was out on WC for almost a year and came back after my seniority date. I say I have 5 owed to me UPs says I only get 4 because I was out over 6 months. I am in the northeast, has any one heard of this?
