You may find yourself in a situation where you are left disabled by a work-related injury or illness. Depending on the severity of your injury or disability will determine how your case is handled by your employer. There are 4 categories for disability:
- Temporary total disability- Worker is completely unable to work for a short period but can return to work at full capacity.
- Temporary partial disability- an employee can work at diminished capacity without needing time off.
- Permanent total disability- Employees can no longer work their position.
- Permanent partial disability- Employees can return to work but never at the same role or capacity they once worked at.
