Light / Restricted Duty

While on an Injury on Duty (IOD), if your doctor removes you from work with restrictions or light duty, it means that you are unable to work, and you will need to call in sick. You should contact your doctor and inform them that American doesn't offer a light/restricted duty option for Flight Attendants.

Sedgwick and the Company are aware that light-duty/restricted duty is not an option for Flight Attendants so you will remain off work until your doctor releases you to full duty without restrictions. Once your claim is accepted you will be recoded to an IOD.

IOD Terms & Definitions

A work-related injury/illness that is approved by the Claims Manager based on the state's Workers' Compensation laws. Because of the complexity of these laws, the Claims Manager is solely responsible for determining compensability. American Airlines (MOD, FSM) is legally prohibited from determining claim compensability.

The FCE is a physical test designed to assess an employee's ability to perform his/her essential job functions and is administered by a specialty licensed physical therapist.

Impairment Rating measures the percentage of disability of the injured body part. This percentage represents the extent a work-related injury has permanently impaired the injured worker. This rating will determine the amount, if any, of the injured worker's permanent disability payments and the number of weeks payable. Please keep in mind that the ability to clear AA Medical is NOT determined by the impairment rating, but by a Flight Attendant's ability to perform their essential job functions. (*See the AA Flight Attendant Job Description and Essential Functions.)

IME/QME may be requested by Sedgwick. The results of the IME are legally binding. This means that if the IME clears you to return to work, your Work Comp benefits will cease immediately. If you disagree with the results of the IME/QME based on your own and your primary treating physician's assessment, there is an appeals process in each state. Contact your state's Workers' Compensation office to find out if you are required to attend the IME/QME or for information about filing an appeal.

The IOD Administrator is responsible for coding your IOD once it is deemed compensable.

This denotes the point in time when the primary treating physician determines that the injured worker has recovered as much as he/she is going to for a particular injury. In some states there is a statutory MMI/P&S imposed after a specified period of time.

Most Work Comp claims will be assigned a Nurse Case Manager. The primary responsibility of the NCM is to assist the injured employee in obtaining appropriate medical treatment. They can facilitate communications between your treating doctor and Sedgwick and address concerns regarding the medical aspects of your claim.

The Preferred Provider Network (PPN) is an established network of medical providers who accept Workers' Comp. If you reside in a state with employer directed care, if you wish to use your sick time in conjunction with an IOD, or if you qualify for TU pay continuance, you must use a PPN doctor.

An independent insurance company employee who is contracted to manage the administrative portion of Workers' Compensation claims in compliance with applicable state laws. Among other responsibilities, the claims manager is responsible for determining claim compensability and authorizing certain medical procedures. Sedgwick CMS is currently the third-party insurance company that administers Workers' Compensation claims for American Airlines.

The medical provider that the Claims Manager recognizes with regard to determining your physical capabilities or limitations. Generally this will be the treating doctor that you selected, but in certain jurisdictions, the Claims Manager may designate an Independent Medical Examiner (IME) or Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) to make a determination regarding your status. The results of an IME/QME are legally binding.

The number of days the injured worker must wait before state mandated workers' compensation payments become available. This waiting period varies from state to state. You will not receive any pay for the time during the statutory waiting period unless you exceed the Retroactive Period which also varies from state to state.

TTD or TIBS (Texas only) are the state required wage replacement benefits which commence after the Statutory Waiting Period.

Workers' Compensation

Sedgwick administers Injury on Duty (IOD) claims with applicable Workers’ Compensation laws for the state in which the injured worker is based. Rules vary by state. All claims are administered and subject to approval by the Company’s Workers’ Compensation insurance carrier Sedgwick.

Worker's Compensation Pay

A Flight Attendant who becomes injured or sick due to an occupational injury or illness shall receive Workers’ Compensation benefits by individual State laws providing the claim is compensable.

The wage replacement benefits that an injured employee may receive are known as Total Temporary Disability (TTD) or Temporary Income Benefits (TIBs).

  • TTD/TIBs will be paid directly by Sedgwick CMS according to a state mandated formula. *See Worker's Compensation State Specifics.
  • Workers' Compensation benefits are non-taxed.
  • Benefit amounts may vary considerably from state to state. Low time fliers will usually get a reduced benefit.
  • In some states, your benefits may be reduced if your Doctor says you can perform Light Duty. AA and Sedgwick are aware that Light Duty is not an option for Flight Attendants. Light Duty or Restricted Duty means that you are off work until the Doctor releases you to full duty. (See IOD Work Status Report).
  • Employees receiving only Workers' Compensation pay benefits will be placed on unpaid IOD LOA status. This simply means that they are not getting a paycheck from AA.

State Specific Workers' Compensation Benefits

Statutory Waiting Period

The time frame the injured worker must wait before state mandated workers' compensation payments become available. This waiting period varies from state to state. In order to qualify for state mandated pay, you must exceed the statutory waiting period in your state. You will not receive any pay for the time during the statutory waiting period unless you exceed the Retroactive Period, which also varies from state to state. Work Comp/Medical Benefits should be paid immediately in an approved workers' compensation claim.

Example: In North Carolina there is a 7-day statutory waiting period before you can receive temporary total disability benefits. If you are out of work for less than 7 days, your medical expenses should be paid, but you do not qualify for wage-loss benefits until after the seventh day. You will not receive any wage-loss benefits for the first 7 days of your disability unless you are disabled for more than 21 days.

Notice to Employer

The statutory state time limit that the employee has to notify their employer of a work-related injury and file the claim. If you sustain a work-related injury, immediately notify your employer of the injury at your first opportunity (see new reporting process). If your injury developed over a period of time, notify your employer as soon as you have symptoms and realize that you have been injured as a result of your job.

By filing your injury with your employer, you can avoid any misunderstanding about whether or not you reported the injury and it will protect your right to workers' compensation benefits. (By filing and signing AA's Automated Accident Report your obligation of Notice to Employer is fulfilled.)

Notice to Employer is mandated by the state and should NOT be confused with American Airlines' policy (which is located in American Airlines' Employee Policy Guide on Jetnet). This policy requires you "to seek medical treatment within 24 hours of the first lost day due to the injury - failure to comply may result in lost time being unpaid".

If you fail to seek medical treatment within 24 hours of the first day of lost time you may be denied the opportunity to use your SK time during the Statutory Waiting period and to augment your workers' compensation payments with SK time during the IOD.

American's policy does not negate your right to file for a workers' compensation claim as long as you meet your state's requirements of Notice to Employer which is outlined by state below.

Pay & Dues While on IOD

Salary Continuance

In addition to receiving Workers' Compensation benefits, a FA must select a physician from the PPN to be eligible for salary continuance, except in the following cases:
— They live in a state where the Company chooses not to participate in a PPN
— The state does not have a PPN
— The FA's primary residence is more than 45 miles from the nearest PPN provider

The amount of a FAs salary continuance will be equal to their six (6) month average but in no case shall they receive an amount greater than one hundred and ten (110) hours. A FA's salary continuance will be offset by their Workers' Compensation benefits. FAs shall be eligible to receive salary continuance for up to six (6) months. If a FA sustains injuries as a direct consequence of an aircraft accident that results in substantial aircraft damage or a single fatality, they will be eligible to receive salary continuance for up to thirty-six (36) months.

End of the Six-Month Salary Continuance Period

At the end of the six-month salary continuance, if you choose to USE sick hours, you will be placed on a paid Occupational injury/Medical Leave of Absence and, required to use any available sick hours, for all hours of trips missed in your bid line or reserve guarantee.

PROS
Once you have exhausted the six-month Salary Continuance, if using SK hours, you remain active on AA payroll.
— Being active on payroll delays the start of the 5-year clock.
— Being active on payroll will extend the ability to be covered by AA insurance benefits.
— Using with SK hours may generate enough income to cover your normal contributory portion for insurance benefits.
— Using SK hours makes it simple to get LTD payments in a timely manner.

CONS
If you exhaust your SK hours in conjunction with an IOD, it will not be there should other health concerns arise.

Pay While on an IOD

Statutory Waiting Period

This is the period of time an injured worker has to be off work before they are considered eligible for Workers' Compensation pay. The waiting period is determined by state law and begins when the employee is removed from work by a physician for a compensable injury.

The duration is determined by state:
— 3 days: California, Illinois
— 5 days: Massachusetts
— 7 days: Florida, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Arizona, Pennsylvania

During the statutory waiting period a Flight Attendant must use accrued sick leave hours, if available, or at the FA's option, they may use vacation time when sick leave hours have been exhausted. If a FA received retroactive payments of Workers' Compensation benefits for the statutory waiting period, they will be required to reimburse the Company for any sick leave and vacation used during such period.

IOD and Family Medical Leave

The Family Leave Act allows employers to run FML concurrent with a work-related injury, and AA will do so if an injured employee meets the eligibility criteria.

Union Dues

Contact the dues department to check the status of your dues obligation while you are on an IOD. (817) 540-0108 ext. 8151.

Benefits While on an IOD

Maintaining Your AA Benefits and Optional Coverages

Sedgwick CMS, the Worker's Compensation insurance company, is responsible for payment of all approved medical expenses related to the IOD. If you seek medical treatment (other than the initial emergency treatment) without Sedgwick approval, Sedgwick may refuse payment.

You will be responsible for payments of the monthly contributory portion of your personal insurance benefits while on AA payroll and for the first 12 months on an unpaid status. You will be direct billed for your benefits for the first 12 months of an unpaid IOD LOA. After 12 months on an unpaid status, FA's will be given the option to continue their contribution benefits coverage under COBRA.

If you have any outstanding loans with the AA Credit Union or Fidelity 401K, you will need to call them to make payment arrangements.

You are responsible for filing your LTD claim before the 1-year deadline has elapsed, and for supplying MET Disability with requested medical documentation.

Workers' Comp with Long Term Disability (LTD)

This benefit is only available to those who have LTD coverage. Short-term Disability does not cover work related injuries. Always file your LTD claim as soon as possible. There is a one-year filing deadline from the date of disability. The LTD claim form is available on the Benefits page of Jetnet.

LTD benefits begin at the end of 4 months of continuous disability, or when FA's sick bank is depleted, whichever comes later. If your LTD claim is approved, you will receive a minimum benefit as long as you are also receiving Worker's Compensation benefits. LTD benefits are non-taxed.

If you are no longer receiving Workers' Compensation pay, LTD payments are based on 50% of the FA base pay. In order for LTD to continue beyond 24 months, medical substantiation is required which shows that FA is permanently disabled and cannot perform any type of employment.

Social Security Disability Benefits

Flight Attendants who receive LTD benefits are required to apply for Social Security Disability within 6 months of when the LTD claim is approved. FA's with no LTD coverage may also apply for Social Security Disability. SSD eligibility is normally based on 12 months of continuous disability.

Social Security Disability benefits are taxed as income only if you or your spouse earned taxable income. Contact your local Social Security office or log on to the Social Security website at www.ssa.gov/benefits/disability/ for more information

Travel Benefits While on IOD

While on an IOD, if eligible, FML will run concurrently with your IOD. During this period, yourself, your eligible dependents and guest travelers will continue to have travel privileges on American, as well as travel on other airlines through ZED agreements (booked through mylDTravel). When traveling on American, you and your dependents will travel D2. Travel privilege for parents (D2P and guest travelers (D3) will continue for the duration of your absence.

If you are not eligible for FML or your FML has exhausted, your travel will be discontinued effective the first day of your paid or unpaid leave of absence for the duration of your leave. However, travel privileges will continue for your eligible dependents, parents and guest travelers on American.

Any exceptions to such travel must be specifically approved in advance and in writing as follows:

  • The Worker's Compensation Department must request travel in advance for required medical treatment related to your injury and not locally available.
  • Your FSM may grant an exception to travel for an A9 qualifying emergency with written verification of emergency.

Vacation and IOD

Flight Attendats receiving Salary Continuance shall accrue sick and vacation up to six (6) months. Vacation is banked and the Flight Attendant can rebid their vacation when they return to work for later in the year or carry it over to the next year.  If the FA returns to work prior to their originally awarded vacation days, vacation can be reinstated over the original dates or the FA can request a vacation payout for a full or a portion of the remaining vacation days. (See Section 8-c.7di)

Denied Claims or Benefits

Denied Claims

Always seek medical treatment if it is necessary. Do not put your health at risk by delaying treatment while waiting for a claim to be approved.

If your Workers' Comp claim is denied, Sedgwick is required to notify you in writing of the reason(s) for the denial. If you believe that the claim was wrongfully denied and would like to dispute the decision, you should contact the state workers' compensation commission for information regarding the proper dispute procedures. You may choose to consult with a Workers' Compensation attorney or, in some states, you may be advised by the workers' comp commission to do so.

Please be advised that Sedgwick will not authorize payment for your medical treatment unless the claim is approved. You will need to pay for Medical treatment yourself or make other arrangements for payment until your claim is settled.

If your claim is ultimately approved, most medical expenses should be covered and wage benefits retro-actively reinstated.

Denied Benefits or Treatment

If your workers' compensation benefits or treatment are denied, you may need to request a hearing before your state workers' compensation appeals board. Examples of problems that may necessitate a hearing include:

  • Authorization for medical treatment - The claims administrator refuses to pay for your approved medical treatment.
  • Authorization for surgery or tests - Your treating doctor requests authorization to do surgery or perform tests; such as a MRI, and the insurance company refuses to authorize it.
  • Refusal to provide benefits - The treating physician says that you are entitled to benefits, such as vocational rehabilitation services, and the insurance company refuses to provide them.
  • Insufficient benefits - The insurance company pays temporary disability at a lower rate than your earnings justify.
  • Inadequate medical care - You believe the quality of medical treatment you are receiving is inadequate, and the insurance company refuses to send you to another doctor.

Resources While on an IOD or Leave

Clearing From an IOD

If you receive treatment at a hospital, clinic or an urgent care facility and you are released to full duty, you will need to fax your release to Sedgwick at (859) 280-3274. It is also a good idea to fax your release to the AA IOD Admin Team at (682) 275-9015.

The FA's Workers Comp treating doctor must provide medical documentation to show that the FA can return to full duty and able to perform the physical demands of the Flight Attendant position. Many doctors are unfamiliar with the physical specifications of the Flight Attendant job, so make sure that your doctor has reviewed the Flight Attendant job description in order to adequately judge your ability to return to full duty with no restrictions.

FAs are responsible to contact the AA's IOD administration to return to work. They will advise you of any return to work requirements such as training, fingerprinting, drug testing, and making sure you are current with your AA IDs or local base badges. Once you have cleared from your IOD, contact the AA training department with questions regarding any training you may have to attend. If you have questions about the timelines for training, contact the APFA contract rep on duty at contract@apfa.org.
