Under Florida Law no payment is due for lost wages for the first 7 days; however, your employer will continue paying your salary for the first 7 days if you are a full-time employee. OPS employees do not receive any salary for the first 40 hours or 7 days of lost time. You are responsible for keeping your employer updated on your work status and to report to work when your authorized treating physician releases you. If you do not report for duty when released you will not be paid. Even though you may not be fully recovered from your injury, your treating physician may release you to return to work if certain work restrictions can be accommodated by your employer.
