Counting Lost Days for Work Related Injury
I am reading the General Recording Criteria - 1907.7 which reads that you may stop counting days if the employee leaves the company for some reason "unrealted" to the injury or illness such as retirement, plant closing, or taking another job. We had an injured worker not return as a result of the injury. The person is still on restrictions and based on the most recent medical notes will remain this way through the end of the year. This was a summer job for this worker and his plan was to return to school in the fall. Would returning to school be a reason that we could stop counting lost days?
Thanks so much.
