Section 21.8 Workers' Compensation Leave - March 18, 1996
TO: State Departments and Agencies
Attached is a revised Physical Capabilities Form which replaces the two separate forms issued with Policy Bulletins No. 93-04 for PEF-represented employees and No. 93-01 for CSEA-represented employees.
The revised Physical Capabilities Form reflects the change in both eligibility and length of assignments for mandatory alternate duty programs from 45 to 60 calendar days prior to an employee's date of full recovery. This change became effective on April 2, 1995, for accidents on or after July 1, 1992, for ASU, ISU, OSU, DMNA and RRSU employees and for accidents on or after July 1, 1993, for PS&T Unit employees.
A copy of this Physical Capabilities Form is also being sent to the State Insurance Fund for their use. Please feel free to photocopy the attached form for your agency's use.
For assistance or further information on this bulletin or for assistance in administering the Workers' Compensation Programs, please contact the Employee Relations Section at (518) 457-5167.
