Get Holiday Pay and Workers’ Compensation? 

When you file a claim, your employer will have a portion to fill out, and approval of your benefits will depend upon careful scrutiny of your claim by the insurance company, their claim specialists, and their lawyers. One of the McPherson workers compensation lawyers from Pyle Law is here to answer any questions you might have about your workers’ comp claim or benefits denial, and read on to learn more. 

Being injured on the job puts your life on hold, and while you recover and go through rehabilitation, you may be unable to work and support your family. During these difficult times, workers’ compensation is meant to provide for your needs to ensure that you do not have to cover any out-of-pocket expenses associated with your medical bills and lost earnings. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation does not kick in automatically but must be applied for.

Workers’ Compensation is Meant to Cover Medical Bills and Lost Earnings 

Workers’ compensation benefits are meant to cover your out-of-pocket costs from your medical bills associated with your work-related injury or illness, in addition to the lost value of your earnings and other work benefits, which include accrued sick time and vacation time like holiday pay. If you cannot collect workers’ compensation benefits after your injury because your covered employer did not secure workers’ compensation for you and other employees, you could be entitled to a civil penalty of twice the annual premium or $25,000, whichever is greater.

Knowing what options are available to you to recover your damages can be difficult to determine and can require knowledge of local law, procedure, and case precedent, and your workers’ compensation attorney is here to help. 

 

Workers’ Comp During the Holidays

Accidents and work injuries never happen at convenient times. This unfortunately can mean that you might be depending on workers’ comp and out of work during the holiday season. This is often the time that your family could benefit from a little extra money, so you do not want to forgo your holiday pay. 

Whether you are eligible to receive holiday pay while on workers’ comp benefits will depend on the specific circumstances of your case. The best way to know for sure is to discuss the matter with your workers’ compensation lawyer who understands Kansas work injury laws.

Your employer might try to deny you rightful pay by reasoning that you are already receiving benefits. The insurance company might try to limit benefits if you receive your holiday pay. In this situation, the only one truly on your side is your workers’ compensation lawyer. We will have your best interests in mind.
