COVID Workers Comp

I am happy to share with everyone that one of our FOP members followed through on the Workers Comp claim for their time off with COVID. Because they followed through, they are now getting paid for 32 days of leave that they were forced to take without pay. They will also be covered moving forward for any subsequent treatment related to to their medical condition. When this all started going sideways with leave, FOP posted about this. We said if you get told you can’t go to work because you have Covid, file a workers comp claim as there is a national assumption for first responders that if you get covid, you did so in the course of your duties. Initially they were denied, and that’s how workers comp works, but ultimately, they triumphed and now get a nice check for the time they spent at home. If you need help with this stuff, FOP will guide you in the right direction. It is your responsibility to follow through. Be safe and take care of each other.
