Section 21.8 - Workers' Compensation Leave - December 14, 1992
TO: State Departments and Agencies
The State Insurance Fund has advised us that as part of the development of their information management system, they are revising the format and the frequency in which wage replacement payment information will be provided to State agencies.
A new State Insurance Fund report based on the information contained on Form C-8 will be issued to State agencies for employees receiving wage replacement awards from the Fund. This report, which will replace the employer's copy of the C-8, will be mailed on a monthly basis directly to the employee's agency, facility, campus or personnel office at the address indicated on the C-2, "Employer's Report of Injury/Illness." The employee will continue to receive the current Form C-8, which will be mailed to the employee's residence.
The new report, "State Insurance Fund - Compensation Payment System, Information From C-8 with Details Of Employer Reimbursement" (see sample copy attached), will include the information that was contained on the C-8 and the following new information that formerly was not provided to agencies:
The "Detail of New York State Credit" section is needed for agencies to restore leave accruals following a Workers' Compensation Board hearing and Notice of Decision (C-23 or C-18) or Motion Calendar Notice of Decision (EC-200X). Leave accruals may be restored only for periods of compensability in which a NYS credit was issued by the State Insurance Fund in accordance with the Workers' Compensation Board's decision. For employees covered by the Statutory Benefit Program (i.e., CSEA and DC 37 represented employees with workers' compensation incidents on or after July 1, 1992) leave accruals should be restored on a prorated basis as detailed in Department of Civil Service Policy Bulletin 92-01. In all other situations where employees are eligible to have credits restored, they are restored in full.
Questions regarding this report should be directed to your usual State Insurance Fund district office contact.
