Re: Time Off for Surgery and Recovery
TTD is not paid for the first three lost work days, unless the
employee misses 14 or more calendar days due to the injury.
The employer should make the first TTD payment within 14 days
after receiving notice of the injury. Since delays are common, to
facilitate the prompt payment of benefits, we encourage the
employee to give the employer a written demand for TTD benefits
along with the doctor’s note.
So, if you're not off for 14 days, you won't be paid for the first three, of which you could use your sick leave time to accomodate the difference.
If you're off longer than 14 days, you should be covered, no need to use your sick leave.
