Lost Time/Restrictions

If an employee begins losing time from work or is given restrictions, please notify Risk Management. Lost wage benefits for a work-related injury begin on the eighth day of disability. An employee is not compensated for lost wages for the first seven days. Sick or vacation time may be used. No employee is to use sick or vacation time beginning on the eighth day of disability.

Employees are responsible for maintaining contact with their supervisor regarding their absence and should bring all paperwork to their supervisor. A doctor's excuse is needed for related lost time or work restrictions.

Return to Work

A Return to Work slip is mandatory. The University of Richmond has a Return to Work Policy, and when applicable, the University will make every effort to provide its employees temporary, modified duty if necessary. It is the responsibility of the supervisor to notify Risk Management when the employee returns to work.
