If a doctor is certifying that you’re totally temporarily disabled and can’t work, or that there are temporary work restrictions where your employer can’t accommodate, then ultimately you’re entitled to, in my opinion, State Disability Benefits through the Employment Development Department. This is 2/3 (about 66%) of your salary, while you’re aren’t working so long as a doctor is certifying that you’re totally temporarily disabled and can’t work or there are temporary work restrictions the employers are failing to accommodate. You can get this benefit for up to a year, so long as the doctor is certifying throughout this time and there’s sufficient money in your account. Ultimately, you have to work, within generally the prior year, in order to have money in that account. Keep in mind that the Employment Development Department is a separate department. It’s separate and distinct from Workers’ Compensation or general, civil employment litigation.
