A School District staff member who believes they have been physically injured within the employee's scope of employment by another individual who intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to such employee must report such injury to the employee’s administrator as soon as practical. An administrator will then investigate the circumstances to determine if the employee qualifies for paid injury leave. The employee may be required to provide confirmation from a physician regarding the causation and the period of time for which an employee is unable to work.  If the administrator determines that the employee qualifies for paid injury leave, then the employee will receive up to seven calendar days of paid injury leave to cover the amount of time that the employee was otherwise scheduled to work. Such paid injury leave will not count against the employee’s other available leave.

If the administrator determines that the employee does not qualify for paid injury leave, then the employee may be required to use other available leave. There is no appeal process for an employee who has been denied a request for paid injury leave.
