Will you Get Workers Compensation During Holidays?

  • If you’re currently receiving workers’ compensation benefits due to a personal injury in the workplace, and are planning to take vacation leave, don’t be too quick to assume that there is no point in expecting holiday pay from your employer. Depending on the terms of an employment contract, some employers require workers to be performing their duties within 60 days of the vacation in order to be eligible for both holiday paychecks and weekly workers’ comp.

    You may receive holiday pay if your contract states that your vacation pay is calculated based on work performed for a certain period before the holiday, not after. Consult with Los Angeles workers compensation attorney at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz, he or she will help you to examine your contract to make collecting both workers’ comp and holiday pay possible.
