Excused Absence

Excused absence may be applied for hours missed on the date of injury.

An employee may be eligible for Excused Absence with six (6) months of the date of the injury.

An employee who has filed a claim for traumatic injury (CA-1), has exhausted or forfeited his/her 45 days of continuation of pay (COP), and has returned to work may be excused from duty without charge to leave for medically-supported, injury-related examinations or treatment.

The amount of excused absence shall not exceed four (4) hours in a day.

The same applies to employees who have filed a claim for occupational illness (CA-1) and are not eligible for continuation of pay.

Excused absence should never be used when an individual is disabled from duty.

Please speak with a Specialist at (301) 402-2669 for more information.
