Re: State Employee (Why Overtime is Not Included in Accident Leave ?) ( AL vs TTD)
No, I don't think it's "fair" I'm just stating what the rules and the law say.
do you think that it's fair
for not including overtime in AL but to include it in TTD ?
I still think this has something to do with the funding of the two - AL's funded by tax dollars, Worker Compensation is funded by insurance dollars.
When it comes to tax money, what's fair is irrelevant.
The AL rules state " two-thirds of the employee’s regular pay."
The Worker Comp act says "Two-thirds of the employee 's Average Weekly Wage" which means all pay including overtime.
TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY:
Two-thirds of the employee 's Average Weekly Wage not to exceed 100% of the State Average Weekly Wage or $1,052.00.
This may be a case a constitutional lawyer would be interested in - there could be a big pay day if he filed a class action and prevailed - it might be worth looking into.
I agree with Bob, this is possibly a violation of the "Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution" governing Equal Protection.
Equal Protection Overview
The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits states from denying any person within its territory the equal protection of the laws. This means that a state must treat an individual in the same manner as others in similar conditions and circumstances. The Federal Government must do the same, but this is required by the Fifth Amendment Due Process.
