New York State Disability

Issued: January 1, 1993

All employees are covered by the provisions of the New York State Disability Law. If the employee has been absent for seven consecutive calendar days due to a non-occupational illness or accident, the employee may be entitled to receive weekly benefits.

Payment of benefits begins after the employee has exhausted his or her Columbia sick leave entitlement.

Supervisors are required to contact the Employee Return to Work Program when an employee has been absent for seven consecutive calendar days due to a non-occupational illness or accident. Illnesses or accidents that are job—or occupation—related should be processed as Workers' Compensation absences.
