Temporary Disability Benefits & Short-Term Disability Benefits

November 3rd, 2011

In another important decision for injured workers, the Oregon Workers’ Compensation Board decided that if workers injured on the job who have short-term disability benefits through your work, may still receive time loss (temporary disability) benefit paid by the workers’ compensation insurance company, as well as short-term disability benefits.  These benefits are not the same as sick leave.

Workers injured on the job in Oregon who are entitled to receive sick leave pay, may not be post-injury wages and you do not get time loss also.
