May i please request advice. I broke my ankle at work and have been off for over a month. What leave is that considered? Sick? Annual?

Thank you!

Hi there

Section 47(1) of COIDA stipulates that compensation for temporary total disablement must be calculated on the basis set out in “Item 1 of Schedule 4”.

If the employee is booked off due to an IOD for 4 days or longer, but less than 3 months, the employer must pay the injured employee at a rate of at least 75% of his earnings, from the first day, until the employee returns to work.
