§ 36-4-64 Sick leave – Workers' compensation.

(a) Whenever an employee shall be absent from his or her duties and is awaiting workers' compensation benefits, he or she shall be granted sick leave in an amount not to exceed his or her regular compensation.

(b) Whenever an employee shall be absent from his or her duties and is receiving compensation as provided in the workers' compensation laws, he or she shall be granted sick leave so that the total of his or her compensation as provided in the workers' compensation laws and his or her deductions from sick leave shall not exceed eighty three and three tenths percent (83.3%) of his or her regular compensation. Deductions from accumulated credits shall be applied only to that part of his or her salary which is paid as an addition to workers' compensation payments. Annual leave credits may be applied in the same manner. When the absence shall not be covered by sick leave or annual leave it shall be deemed to be leave without pay.
