I was injured in Dec 2009. Back injury. Rated and released March 2010 with 10% PPD. I was given my disability pay in lump sum. I was re injured the following month. It's considered same claim. I am on 4 hour work days pending surgery in August. My company says I can't get salary compensation because my lump sum represents 30 weeks if indemnity and until that time has passed it would be considered paying out 2 indemnitys at the same time. They refuse to provide that information in writing so I can file on my STD. They say I will get compensation after the 30 week period has passed. But I will not be compensated for paying myself from my disability pay. This means I am not getting my full disability compensation. Does anyone know NC law on this subject?
