    Default Waiting Period

    So, I posted in March about my injury, things improved a little with PT, and I went back to full duty. Then my knee got worse again, case was opened back up, and had surgery on my knee. My question this time around is this, bc I cannot recall... is it after I've been out of work for 21 calendar days that they have to pay me backpay? Bc I was officially put out of work July 16, then hit 21 days August 6. I contacted my adjuster midweek last week to remind her my 21 days was coming up THREE TIMES (to get a timeline as to how long before a backpay check was issued bc money is tight), emailed and called yesterday and today, as well as the nurse case manager and employee health, and can't get a response from ANYONE. I just want to make sure my info is correct before I get hold of someone and have to argue with them. I think it's 7 days waiting period, and then when you hit 21 you get 2/3 of backpay? And it's Calendar days, correct, including weekends? Thanks to anyone who can answer. (They dragged their feet last time too with my backpay)

    Edited to add: Also, do I have a right to see all my medical records? Including MRI, surgery, etc? And a second, separate opinion? Bc my healing isn't going as well as they keep saying it should be, and the nurse case manager I was assigned is VERY buddy-buddy with the ortho Dr, his PA, and the staff... as in, they're on a first name basis. I also feel it's possible my injury was worsened by not getting proper treatment (surgery) the first time around. The ortho is in the health system of the health system I work at and was injured at. Everything just seems incredibly shady.

    Also, if my PT falls on the middle of my shift after return to work, are they required to pay me, or do I have to clock in and out? They said I have to clock on and out and lose my time.
