Temporary Modified/Light-Duty Assignment

4113.4

Adopted June 14, 2006

Temporary Modified/Light-Duty Assignment

BP 4113.4

Personnel

The Board of Trustees recognizes that when employees suffer work-related injuries, modified or light-duty assignments minimize lost time and may serve to facilitate the transition back to the employee's regular duties or full-time work. Whenever possible, the Superintendent or designee shall offer such employees this kind of temporary assignment.

(cf. 4157.1/4257.1/4357.1 - Work-Related Injuries)

Modified or light-duty assignments shall be designed to accommodate medical restrictions specified by the employee's physician. They may include work in the same job classification or a different job classification at the employee's regular salary rate.

Modified or light-duty assignments are intended to address short-term medical restrictions and will normally extend for less than eight weeks' duration. These assignments shall not be used as a means to establish new assignments or displace other employees.

Temporary Modified/Light Duty Assignment

Adopted June 14, 2006

Temporary Modified/Light Duty Assignment

AR 4113.4

Personnel

Any employee who suffers a work-related injury shall provide the district with medical verification of his/her physical condition. Unless the treating physician provides a full release from work, the employee may be considered eligible for a temporary modified or light-duty assignment. If the treating physician does not specify work restrictions, the Superintendent or designee may contact the physician to see if modified or light-duty work might be appropriate.

(cf. 4157.1/4257.1/4357.1 - Work-Related Injuries)

The Superintendent or designee shall meet with the employee and his/her supervisor to determine whether the employee can return to his/her regular job with the medical restrictions specified by the physician.

If the employee is not able to return to his/her regular job with restrictions, the Superintendent or designee shall seek a temporary modified or light-duty assignment for the employee. Employees who are given such assignments shall receive written notification of the assignment.

If no temporary modified or light-duty assignment can be found, the employee will be placed on temporary disability, sick leave, or other available leave to the extent available until an appropriate position within the medical restrictions is found, or until the medical restrictions are lifted. The Superintendent or designee shall also monitor the status of any employee for whom the physician provided a full release from work to see if the employee could return to a temporary modified or light-duty assignment at a later date.

(cf. 4161.11/4361.11 - Industrial Accident/Illness Leave)

(cf. 4261.11 - Industrial Accident/Illness Leave)

If an employee rejects a temporary modified or light-duty assignment, this refusal may provide a basis for terminating temporary disability benefits.

The Superintendent or designee shall monitor all modified and light-duty assignments and may contact the physician for assistance in determining when the employee is ready to resume his/her regular duties.
