Should I use my sick days or vacation time when I have been hurt at work?
When a worker gets injured on the job in Missouri, and even in St. Louis, they may feel compelled to use their vacation time, their sick time and any other accumulated benefits that they have in order to lessen the impact of missing time from work due to their work related injury. The good thing about Missouri workers compensation law is that for a worker who is injured, the law provides for them to be paid for the time that they have missed from work. If you have been hurt at work and have been using your hard earned benefits in order to keep your paychecks coming we can help. Not only can we get you that vacation time back, but we can also get you paid for the time you have missed from work.
If you are considering doing this, or have started to do this and are having second thoughts, please call us to discuss your St. Louis workers compensation case. We know that it takes a long time to accumulate sick days and vacation time. It is unfair to have to use that time when the only reason that you are off of work is because you have been injured while working. Please don’t use your hard earned benefits, call us today to hear how we can help.
