    If you or your employees get injured at work or require medical leaves, Workers Compensation or Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) programs can be applicable. Windermere Medical Group offers service to those in need of these programs for assistance during challenging times.

    Workers Compensation

    The workers compensation offers protection to employees in case of any work-related illnesses or injuries. If any employee gets sick or injured on the job, workers compensation provides them with the benefits to get the required medical attention and recover quickly.
    It can protect employees if they:

    • Get injured in a car accident while meeting with a customer
    • Suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome from typing
    • Strains or sprains caused at work
    • Fractures and contusions
    • Stress-related injuries
    • Continuous or cumulative trauma

    According to the US Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP), four major disability compensation programs adhere to federal workers or any groups of workers who are prone to injury at work or in the proximity of acquiring an occupational disease –allowing the injured the following benefits:

    • Wage replacement benefits
    • Medical treatment
    • Vocational rehabilitation
    • Other benefits

    Workers compensation also funds the training of employees for new job positions if they are unable to return to their old jobs after the injury. Moreover, if they are unable to work again, workers compensation also offers long-term disability benefits.

  • Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)

    FMLA is a labor law that requires all covered employers to offer their workers unpaid, job-protected leaves for qualified family and medical reasons. It is applicable to all private and public secondary and elementary schools, public agencies, and businesses with over 50 employees.
    The employers have to offer eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leaves annually for one of the following reasons:

    • Birth of a newborn child of the employee
    • Foster care or adoption placement of a child with the employee
    • To provide care for a family member, including parents, child, or spouse, with severe health issues
    • To take medical leave if the employee can’t work due to severe health issues

    All employees are eligible to take leaves if they have been working with the employer for a minimum of 12 months, a minimum of 1,250 hours in the past 12 months, and work on-premises with over 50 employees within 75 miles.
