Staff Protection

File: GBEA

Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is an insurance program which covers job-related injuries and occupational diseases. School staff members are covered by a self-insured program which has been approved by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. The staff member is protected in two ways:

    1. Medical costs resulting from job injuries are paid,
    2. Injured employees are paid a partial wage while off work because of a job injury or illness due to on-the-job causes.

When a staff member is injured on the job with a time loss, the district shall grant full sick leave for the first three days provided the staff member has accumulated sick leave to cover. For each day covered by workers' compensation the employee may use accumulated sick leave to make up the difference between the workers' compensation payments and the employee's regular salary. In such instances, total pay shall not exceed the staff member's regular pay.
