Payroll Issues Concerning Work-related Accidents


Three (3) ways an employee can choose to get paid when losing time from work for a work-related accident.:

  1. The employee gets paid nothing from the U of M.  The employee does not have to use sick or vacation.  Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. (Sedgwick, the insurance company) pays 2/3rds of the employee's salary when her/his claim is approved.  The employee is not overpaid.

  2. The employee gets paid 1/3rd from the U of M.  The employee uses sick or vacation leave for that 1/3rd.  Sedgwick pays the employee 2/3rd of her/his salary when the claim is approved.  The employee is not overpaid.

  3. The employee gets paid 100% by the U of M.  The employee uses sick and vacation for the 100%.  The employee gets paid 2/3rds by Sedgwick when the claim is approved.  The employee is over paid.  Payroll uses the weekly Sedgwick reports to figure out the overpayment.  Once the employee pays the U of M back, Central Payroll will refund vacation and sick in proportion of her/his overpayment.

Please contact Cathy Rackliffe (726-6827 / cracklif@d.umn.edu) should you have any questions about this matter.
