Paid First Seven Days after Injury
It is a common misconception among employers that you are not entitled to be paid for time taken off for medical visits related to your injury on the job in the first seven days after your injury. According to Indiana Code Title 22-3-3-4, your employer is required to reimburse you if any medical visits result in time lost at work. Your reimbursement is based on the calculated average of your daily earnings over a fixed period of time. As long as you attend the physician authorized by your employer, your employer is legally required to pay you for the time lost at work due to your medical appointments.
