Universal Citation: WI Admin Code ยง ER 28.05

Current through February 26, 2024

(1) Employees on leave with pay shall submit to such physical or medical examinations as may be required by the appointing authority to determine the extent of or continuation of disability and inability to work. Such examinations shall be at the expense of the agency and performed by physicians selected by the agency. A complete report indicating the nature and extent of disability and prognosis for a reasonable return to duty and date of such return shall be submitted to the agency.

(2) Refusal by the employee to submit to examinations ordered by the appointing authority or medical treatment ordered by the examining physician shall constitute grounds for disciplinary action.

(3) Based upon the information provided by the medical reports the appointing authority shall determine the extent to which leave with pay shall be granted or take action to terminate employment.

(4) Upon return to full work status, an employee's benefits under this section shall cease, providing the employee's attending physician has released the employee from further medical treatment. In the event that the employee is able to return to full work status but further medical treatment is required for the sustained injury, benefits shall continue to be granted to cover the treatment time providing the attending physician has made a prior determination that such treatment is necessary for full recovery.

(5) When an employee suffers further aggravation of an injury for which benefits have ended, the employee may, upon recommendation of the attending physician, have such benefit resume for the period of treatment recommended, provided such aggravation meets the qualifying provisions of s. 230.36, Stats.
