Responsible Official: Director of Payroll
This procedure addresses the articulation of the payroll office’s role with KCTCS’ workers’ compensation claims.
This procedure applies to all KCTCS employees.
Approved workers' compensation payments are administered through the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s third party administrator.
- The third party administrator is responsible for paying approximately 2/3 of the employee’s salary during the defined compensation period.
- The workers’ compensation payment will go directly to the employee and should not flow through KCTCS Payroll.
An employee may request to use his/her accrued sick and vacation leave to supplement any reduction in gross pay due to workers' compensation.
