Q. One of our employees is out on workers’ comp. Our contract says “no sick time will be lost or deducted” while employees are out on workers’ comp. But now he wants to know if he continues to accrue sick time and holiday pay while not working. Does he?

A. It depends on whether, under your policies, employees on other types of leave would accrue sick time and holiday pay. If not, you don’t have to do so for an employee on workers’ comp.
