Temporary Modified/Light-Duty Assignment   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that when employees suffer work-related injuries, modified or light-duty assignments minimize lost time and may serve to facilitate the transition back to the employee's regular duties or full-time work. Whenever possible, the Superintendent or designee shall offer such employees this kind of temporary assignment.

(cf.4157.14257.1/4357.1 - Work-Related Injuries)

Modified or light-duty assignments shall be designed to accommodate medical restrictions specified by the employee's physician. They may include work in the same job classification or a different job classification at the employee's regular salary rate.

Modified or light-duty assignments are intended to address short-term medical restrictions and will normally not extend for more than 90 calendar days. These assignments shall not be used as a means to establish new assignments or displace other employees.
