Temporary Modified/Light-Duty Assignment   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that, when employees have temporarily disabling medical conditions, temporary modified or light-duty assignments can allow the district to continue to use their valuable knowledge, skills, and abilities while minimizing time away from work. Temporary modified/light-duty assignments may also serve to facilitate the employee's transition back to his/her regular duties or full-time work.

(cf. 3530 - Risk Management / Insurance)

(cf. 4157.1 / 4257.1 / 4357.1 - Work-Related Injuries)

(cf. 4161.1 / 4361.1 - Industrial Accident / Illness Leave)

(cf. 4161.8 / 4261.8 / 4361.8 -Family Care and Medical Leave)

(cf. 4261.8 - Industrial Accident / Illness Leave)

Any employee may request a modified or light-duty assignment when he/she has a temporary medical condition which prevents the performance of the essential functions of his/her current assignment or position. The Superintendent or designee shall determine, on a case-by-case basis, whether a suitable temporary position currently exists to accommodate the physical restrictions specified by the employee's medical provider.

(cf. 4032 - Reasonable Accommodation)

An employee who rejects a temporary modified / light-duty assignment may be subject to a loss of workers' compensation benefits in accordance with district's insurance policy.
