1 Temporary Disability Benefits Laws Revised July 2013 Disability insurance benefits are generally a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative) and is not required by federal law. While disability benefits are not generally required by federal or state law, there are some states with temporary disability programs regulated by state law.

Temporary disability benefits are regulated only by individual state laws and are not required under any existing federal laws, therefore, if a state does not appear on the following chart it is due to our not finding any evidence a statute exists for that state. In some cases provisions only exist for public employers. Please note: This material is for personal use only and is protected by U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17 USC).

(b) For purposes of this section, a plea or verdict of guilty, or a felony conviction following a plea of nolo contendere or no contest shall be considered to be a felony conviction under this part, irrespective of whether an order granting probation or suspending the imposition or execution of any sentence is issued.

The director shall be an interested party to any appeal. "Good cause," as used in this section, shall include, but not be limited to, mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect (a) (1) In accordance with the director s authorized regulations, and except as provided in subdivision (c) and Sections and 2709, a claimant shall establish medical eligibility for each uninterrupted period of disability by filing a first claim for disability benefits supported by the certificate of a treating physician or practitioner that establishes the sickness, injury, or pregnancy of the employee, or the condition of the family member that warrants the care of the employee. For subsequent periods of uninterrupted disability after the period covered by the initial certificate or any preceding continued claim, a claimant shall file a continued claim for those benefits supported by the certificate of a treating physician or practitioner. A certificate filed to establish medical eligibility for the employee s own sickness, injury, or pregnancy shall contain a diagnosis and diagnostic code prescribed in the International Classification of Diseases, or, where no diagnosis has yet been obtained, a detailed statement of symptoms. (2) A certificate filed to establish medical eligibility of the employee s own sickness, injury, or pregnancy shall also contain a statement of medical facts including secondary diagnoses when applicable, within the physician s or practitioner s knowledge, based on a physical examination and a documented medical history of the claimant by the physician or practitioner, indicating the physician s or practitioner s conclusion as to the claimant s disability, and

10 a statement of the physician s or practitioner s opinion as to the expected duration of the disability. (b) An employee shall be required to file a certificate to establish eligibility when taking leave to care for a family member with a serious health condition. The certificate shall be developed by the department. In order to establish medical eligibility of the serious health condition of the family member that warrants the care of the employee, the information shall be within the physician s or practitioner s knowledge and shall be based on a physical examination and documented medical history of the family member and shall contain all of the following: (1) A diagnosis and diagnostic code prescribed in the International Classification of Diseases, or, where no diagnosis has yet been obtained, a detailed statement of symptoms. (2) The date, if known, on which the condition commenced. (3) The probable duration of the condition. (4) An estimate of the amount of time that the physician or practitioner believes the employee is needed to care for the child, parent, spouse, or domestic partner. (5) (A) A statement that the serious health condition warrants the participation of the employee to provide care for his or her child, parent, spouse, or domestic partner. (B) Warrants the participation of the employee includes, but is not limited to, providing psychological comfort, and arranging third party care for the child, parent, spouse, or domestic partner, as well as directly providing, or participating in, the medical care. (c) The department shall develop a certification form for bonding that is separate and distinct from the certificate required in subdivision (a) for an employee taking leave to bond with a minor child within the first year of the child s birth or placement in connection with foster care or adoption. (d) The first and any continuing claim of an individual who obtains care and treatment outside this state shall be supported by a certificate of a treating physician or practitioner duly licensed or certified by the state or foreign country in which the claimant is receiving the care and treatment. If a physician or practitioner licensed by and practicing in a foreign country is under investigation by the department for filing false claims and the department does not have legal remedies to conduct a criminal investigation or prosecution in that country, the department may suspend the processing of all further certifications until the physician or practitioner fully cooperates, and continues to cooperate with the investigation. A physician or practitioner licensed by and practicing in a foreign country who has been convicted of filing false claims with the department may not file a certificate in support of a claim for disability benefits for a period of five years. (e) For purposes of this part: (1) Physician has the same meaning as defined in Section of the Labor Code.

(g) Nothing in this section shall be construed to preclude the department from requesting additional medical evidence to supplement the first or any continued claim if the additional evidence can be procured without additional cost to the claimant. The department may require that the additional evidence include any or all of the following: (1) Identification of diagnoses. (2) Identification of symptoms. (3) A statement setting forth the facts of the claimant s disability. The statement shall be completed by any of the following individuals: (A) The physician or practitioner treating the claimant.

For

11 subsequent periods of uninterrupted disability after the period covered by the initial certificate or any preceding continued claim, a claimant shall file a continued claim for those benefits supported by the certificate of a treating physician or practitioner.

(C) An examining physician or other representative of the department. (h) This section shall become operative on July 1, The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) It is in the public benefit to provide family temporary disability insurance benefits to workers to care for their family members. The need for family temporary disability insurance benefits has intensified as the participation of both parents in the workforce has increased, and the number of single parents in the workforce has grown. The need for partial wage replacement for workers taking family care leave will be exacerbated as the population of those needing care, both children and parents of workers, increases in relation to the number of working age adults. (b) Family Temporary Disability Insurance shall be known as Paid Family Leave. (c) Developing systems that help families adapt to the competing interests of work and home not only benefits workers, but also benefits employers by increasing worker productivity and reducing employee turnover. (d) The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California s Family Rights Act (CFRA) entitle eligible employees working for covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for up to 12 workweeks in a 12-month period. Under the FMLA and the CFRA, unpaid leave may be taken for the birth, adoption, or foster placement of a new child; to care for a seriously ill child, parent, or spouse; or for the employee s own serious health condition. (e) State disability insurance benefits currently provide wage replacement for workers who need time off due to their own nonwork-related injuries, illnesses, or conditions, including pregnancy, that prevent them from working, but do not cover leave to care for a sick or injured child, spouse, parent, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, or domestic partner, or leave to bond with a new child. (f) The majority of workers in this state are unable to take family care leave because they are unable to afford leave without pay. When workers do not receive some form of wage replacement during family care leave, families suffer from the worker s loss of income, increasing the demand on the state unemployment insurance system and dependence on the state s welfare system. (g) It is the intent of the Legislature to create a family temporary disability insurance program to help reconcile the demands of work and family. The family temporary disability insurance program shall be a component of the state s unemployment compensation disability insurance program, shall be funded through employee contributions, and shall be administered in accordance with the policies of the state disability insurance program created pursuant to this part. Initial and ongoing administrative costs associated with the family temporary disability insurance program shall be payable from the Disability Fund (a) (1) The purpose of this chapter is to establish, within the state disability insurance program, a family temporary disability insurance program. Family temporary disability insurance shall provide up to six weeks of wage replacement benefits to workers who take time off work to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, parent, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, or domestic partner, or to bond with a minor child within one year of the birth or placement of the child in connection with foster care or adoption. (2) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to abridge the rights and responsibilities conveyed under the CFRA or pregnancy disability leave. (b) An individual s weekly benefit amount shall be the amount provided in Section An individual is eligible to receive family temporary disability insurance benefits equal to one-seventh of his or her weekly benefit amount for each full day during which he or she is unable to work due to caring for a seriously ill or injured family member or bonding with a minor child within one year of the birth or placement of the child in connection with foster care or adoption. (c) The maximum amount payable to an individual during any disability benefit period for family temporary disability insurance shall be six times his or her weekly benefit amount, but in no case shall the total amount of benefits payable be more than the total wages paid to the individual during his or her disability base period. If the benefit is not a multiple of one dollar ($1), it shall be computed to the next higher multiple of one dollar ($1). (d) No more than six weeks of family temporary disability insurance benefits shall be paid within any 12-month period. (e) An individual shall file a claim for family temporary disability insurance benefits not later than the 41st consecutive day following the first compensable day with respect to which the claim is made for benefits, which time shall be extended by the department upon a showing of good cause. If a first claim is not complete, the claim form shall be returned to the claimant for completion and it shall be completed

13 and returned not later than the 10th consecutive day after the date it was mailed by the department to the claimant, except that such time shall be extended by the department upon a showing of good cause. (f) This section shall become operative on July 1, On and after July 1, 2014, for purposes of this part: (a) Care recipient means the family member who is receiving care for a serious health condition or the new child with whom the care provider is bonding. (b) Care provider means the family member who is providing the required care for a serious health condition or the family member who is bonding with the new child. (c) Child means a biological, adopted, or foster son or daughter, a stepson or stepdaughter, a legal ward, a son or daughter of a domestic partner, or the person to whom the employee stands in loco parentis. (d) Domestic partner has the same meaning as defined in Section 297 of the Family Code. (e) Family care leave means any of the following: (1) Leave to bond with a minor child within the first year of the child s birth or placement in connection with foster care or adoption. (2) Leave to care for a child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or domestic partner who has a serious health condition. (f) Family member means child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or domestic partner as defined in this section. (g) Grandchild means a child of the employee s child. (h) Grandparent means a parent of the employee s parent.

(l) Sibling means a person related to another person by blood, adoption, or affinity through a common legal or biological parent. (m) Spouse means a partner to a lawful marriage. (n) Valid claim means any claim for family temporary disability insurance benefits made in accordance with the provisions of this code, and any rules and regulations adopted thereunder, if the individual claiming benefits is unemployed and has been paid the necessary wages in employment for employers to qualify for benefits under Section 2652 and is caring for a seriously ill family member, or bonding with a minor child during the first year after the birth or placement of the child in connection with foster care or adoption. (o) Twelve-month period, with respect to any individual, means the 365 consecutive days that begin with the first day the individual first establishes a valid claim for family temporary disability benefits On and after July 1, 2014, an individual shall be deemed eligible for family temporary disability insurance benefits equal to one-seventh of his or her weekly benefit amount on any day in which he or she is unable to perform his or her regular or customary work because he or she is bonding with a minor child during the first year after the birth or placement of the child in connection with foster care or adoption or caring for a seriously ill child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or domestic partner, only if the director finds all of the following: (a) The individual has made a claim for temporary disability benefits as required by authorized regulations. (b) The individual has been unable to perform his or her regular or customary work for a seven-day waiting period during each disability benefit period, with respect to which waiting period no family temporary disability insurance benefits are payable. (c) The individual has filed a certificate, as required by Sections 2708 and Liability for Overpayments of Benefits -- Any person who is overpaid any amount as benefits under this part is liable for the amount overpaid unless: (a) The overpayment was not due to fraud, misrepresentation or willful nondisclosure on the part of the recipient, and (b) The overpayment was received without fault on the part of the recipient, and its recovery would be against equity and good conscience Assessments for Overpayments -- If the director finds that an individual has been overpaid unemployment compensation disability benefits because he or she willfully, for the purpose of obtaining unemployment compensation disability benefits, either made a false statement or representation, with actual knowledge of the falsity thereof, or withheld a material fact, the director shall assess against the individual an amount equal to 30 percent of the overpayment amount. For the purpose of collection, an assessment made pursuant to this section may be treated as an overpayment.

14 Assessments collected under this section shall be deposited in the Unemployment Compensation Disability Fund. No penalty under this section shall be assessed with regard to any false statement or representation made prior to January 1, Disallowance of Claim by Workmen's Compensation Appeals Board -- No claim of overpayment shall be based upon the disallowance by the Workmen's Compensation Appeals Board of a claim of lien filed under Section 4903 of the Labor Code, or the allowance of such lien for less than the amount claimed, or upon the approval by said Appeals Board of a compromise and release agreement providing for the allowance of such lien in an amount less than the claim Notice -- The Director of Employment Development shall determine the amount of the overpayment and shall notify the recipient of the basis of the overpayment determination. In the absence of fraud, misrepresentation or willful nondisclosure, notice of the overpayment determination shall be mailed or personally served on the recipient within two years after the beginning of the disability benefit period for which the overpayment was made Eligibility of State Employees for Nonindustrial Disability Benefits -- Except as provided in this chapter and Chapter 2.5 (commencing with Section 19878) of Part 2.6 of Division 5 of Title 2 of the Government Code, a state employee shall be eligible for nonindustrial disability benefits on the same terms and conditions as are specified by this part. Except as inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter and Chapter 2.6 (commencing with Section 19878) of Part 2.6 of Division 5 of Title 2 of the Government Code, the provisions of this division and authorized regulations shall apply to any matter arising pursuant to this chapter Same -- (a) The provisions of Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 2901), Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 3001), and Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 3251) of Part 2 do not apply to this chapter. (b) The provisions of Article 2 (commencing with Section 2652), Article 6 (commencing with Section 2765) and Article 7 (commencing with Section 2775) of Chapter 2 of Part 2 do not apply to this chapter. (c) Sections 2609, 2610, 2611, 2625, 2712 and do not apply to this chapter. Hawaii Financing of Nonindustrial Disability Benefits -- (a) Nonindustrial disability benefits are payable by the Controller upon authorization by the Employment Development Department to individuals who are eligible to receive such benefit payments under this chapter. (b) In lieu of the contributions required of employees, the State of California shall pay into the Disability Fund in the State Treasury at the times and in the manner provided in subdivision (c), an amount equal to the additional cost to the Disability Fund for added administrative work arising out of nonindustrial disability insurance for state employees. (c) In making the payments prescribed by subdivision (b), there shall be paid or credited to the Disability Fund, either in advance or by way of reimbursement, as may be determined by the director, such sums as he estimates the Disability Fund will be entitled to receive from the State of California under this section for each fiscal year, reduced or increased by any sum by which he finds that his estimates for any prior fiscal year were greater or less than the amounts which should have been paid to the fund. Such estimates may be made upon the basis of statistical sampling, or other method as may be determined by the director. Upon making such determination, the director shall certify to the Controller the amount determined with respect to the State of California. The Controller shall pay to the Disability Fund the contributions due from the State of California. (d) The director may require from each state agency such employment, wage, financial, statistical, or other information and reports, properly verified, as may be deemed necessary by the director to carry out his duties under this chapter, which shall be filed with the director at the time and in the manner prescribed by him. (e) The director may tabulate and publish information obtained pursuant to this chapter in statistical form and may divulge the name of the employing unit. (f) Each state agency shall keep such work records as may be prescribed by the director for the proper administration of this chapter FINDINGS AND PURPOSE -- A large portion of the labor force of this State annually is disabled from pursuing gainful employment by reason of non-occupational sickness or accident and as

15 a result suffers serious loss of income. In approximately ten percent of the cases such sickness or accident can be expected to cause disability of more than one week's duration. More than two-fifths of the employees in private employment have either no fixed legal protection against wage loss from disabling non-occupational sickness or accident, or only protection for a period of one work week or less; more than one-third of the workers covered by formal sick leave plans are not protected against disability extending beyond two work weeks. Since the hardship for workers and their families mounts with the extension of the duration of the disability from whatever cause, there is a need to fill the existing gaps in protection and to provide benefits to individuals in current employment that will afford them reasonable compensation for wage loss caused by disabling non-occupational sickness or accident where the disability is temporary in nature and exceeds the period of one work week. This legislation is designed not to impede the growth of voluntary plans which afford additional protection. This chapter shall be liberally construed in the light of the stated reasons for its enactment and its declared purpose ESTABLISHMENT OF TEMPORARY DISABILITY BENEFITS -- (a) Any individual in current employment who suffers disability resulting from accident, sickness, pregnancy, or termination of pregnancy, except accident or disease connected with or resulting from employment as defined in section or any other applicable workmen's compensation law, shall be entitled to receive temporary disability benefits in the amount and manner provided in this chapter. (b) It is the policy of this chapter that the computation and distribution of benefit payments shall correspond to the greatest extent feasible, to the employee's wage loss due to his disability; that an employee shall not be entitled to temporary disability benefits for periods of disability during which he would not have earned wages from employment according to the schedule of operations of his employer, and that an employee is entitled to benefits only for periods of disability during which, but for the disability, he would have earned wages from employment. This policy, however, shall not be applied to terminate the benefits of an employee who is receiving benefits under this chapter for a disability that commenced while the employee was in current employment, nor shall it be applied to deny benefits under this chapter if a disability that commenced while the employee was in current employment continues into a period during which the employee would earn wages but for the disability PROCEEDINGS TO DETERMINE EMPLOYMENT AND COVERAGE -- The director of labor and industrial relations shall have original jurisdiction over all controversies and disputes over employment and coverage under this chapter. Except in cases where services are specifically and expressly excluded from "employment" under section 392-5, it shall be presumed that coverage applies unless the party seeking exclusion is able to establish under both the control test and the relative nature of the work test that coverage is not appropriate under this chapter. There shall be a right of appeal from decisions of the director to the circuit court and thence to the supreme court WEEKLY BENEFIT AMOUNT -- Benefits shall be computed as weekly amounts in the manner provided in this section. (1) If the average weekly wage of the employee is less than $26, the weekly benefit amount shall be equal to the average wage but not more than $14; (2) If the average weekly wage of the employee is $26 or more, the weekly benefit amount shall be fifty-eight percent of the average weekly wage rounded off, if not a multiple of $1, to the next higher multiple of $1; (3) If the average weekly earnings of the employee exceed an amount equal to one fifty-second of the product obtained by multiplying the amount of the average annual wage in Hawaii, as determined pursuant to section (b) by the factor 1.21, such excess shall not be included in the computation of the weekly benefit amount; and (4) In no case shall the weekly benefit amount exceed the maximum weekly benefit specified in section of the Workers' Compensation Law DURATION OF BENEFIT PAYMENTS -- Temporary disability benefits shall be payable for any period of disability following the expiration of the waiting period required in section The duration of benefit payments shall not exceed twenty-six weeks for any period of disability or during any benefit year WAITING PERIOD -- No temporary disability benefits shall be payable during the first seven consecutive days of any period of disability. Consecutive periods of disability due to the same

16 or related cause and not separated by an interval of more than two weeks shall be considered as a single period of disability ELIGIBILITY FOR BENEFITS -- An individual is eligible to receive temporary disability benefits if the individual has been in employment for at least fourteen weeks during each of which the individual has received remuneration in any form for twenty or more hours and earned wages of at least $400, during the fifty-two weeks immediately preceding the first day of disability CARE BY PHYSICIAN OR EQUIVALENT REQUIRED -- (a) An individual shall be ineligible to receive temporary disability benefits with respect to any period during which he is not under the care of a person duly licensed to practice medicine, surgery, dentistry, chiropractic, osteopathy, or naturopathy, who shall certify, in the form and manner specified by regulation of the director, the disability of the claimant, the probable duration thereof, and such other medical facts within his knowledge as required by regulation. (b) This section shall not apply to an individual who, pursuant to the teachings, faith, or belief of any group, depends for healing upon prayer or other spiritual means. In that case the disability, the probable duration thereof, and any other pertinent facts required to be certified by regulation of the director shall be certified, in the form and manner specified by the regulation, by a duly authorized or accredited practitioner of such group. (c) The proof of disability duly certified by a person licensed to practice medicine, surgery, dentistry, chiropractic, or osteopathy, or an authorized or accredited practitioner of any group which depends for healing upon prayer or other spiritual means shall be submitted by such certifying person to the disabled employee within seven working days after the date on which the employee was examined and found disabled. If the certifying person fails to submit the required proof within seven working days, the director, upon notification by the insurer, may levy a penalty of $25 for each delinquent certification where the certifying person fails to show good cause for his failure to file on time INELIGIBILITY IN CERTAIN CASES -- An individual shall not be eligible to receive temporary disability benefits: (1) For any period of disability during which the individual would be disqualified from receiving benefits under the Hawaii Employment Security Law by reason of unemployment due to a stoppage of work existing because of a labor dispute for the duration of such disqualification. (2) If the director finds that the individual has knowingly made a false statement or representation of a fact or knowingly failed to disclose a material fact in order to obtain benefits under this chapter to which the individual is not otherwise entitled. The ineligibility shall be for a period determined by the director, but shall not exceed the period of disability with respect to which the false statement or representation was made or the nondisclosure occurred. (3) For any period of disability due to willfully and intentionally self-inflicted injury or to injury sustained in the commission of a criminal offense specified in title 38. (4) For any day of disability during which the employee performed work for remuneration or profit, except that, if an employee returning to work suffers a relapse after performing work for less than a full-day, the employee shall be paid benefits or be given waiting period credit, provided the employee's wages for the partial day's work did not equal or exceed the prorated disability benefits to which the employee is entitled. The amount of the benefit payable is derived by subtracting the gross wages received for performing less than a full day's work, from the prorated disability benefits to which the employee is entitled. (5) Unless the claim for disability benefits is filed within ninety days after the commencement of the period of disability or as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible DUPLICATION OF BENEFITS NOT PERMITTED -- No temporary disability benefits shall be payable for any period of disability for which the employee is entitled to receive. (1) Weekly benefits under the Employment Security Law or similar laws of this State or of any other state or of the United States, or under any temporary disability benefits law of any other state or of the United States except as provided in section (2) Weekly disability insurance benefits under 42 U.S.C.A. sec (3) Weekly benefits for total disability under the Workers' Compensation Law of this State or any other state or of the United States, except benefits for permanent partial or permanent total disability previously incurred. If the claimant does not receive benefits under such workmen's compensation law and his entitlement to such benefits is seriously disputed, the employee, if otherwise eligible, shall receive temporary disability benefits under this chapter, but any insurer or employer or

17 the special fund for disability benefits providing such benefits shall be subrogated, as hereinafter provided, to the employee's right to benefits under the workmen's compensation law for the period of disability for which he received benefits under this chapter to the extent of the benefits so received. (4) Indemnity payments for wage loss under any applicable employers' liability law of this State, or of any other state or of the United States. If an employee has received benefits under this chapter for a period of disability for which he is entitled to such indemnity payments, any insurer or employer or the special fund for disability benefits providing such benefits shall be subrogated to the employee's right to such indemnity payments in the amount of the benefits paid under this chapter as hereinafter provided NO ASSIGNMENT OF BENEFITS; EXEMPTIONS FROM ATTACHMENT, ETC. -- No assignment, pledge, or encumbrance of any right to benefits which are or may become due or payable under this chapter shall be valid; and such rights to benefits shall be exempt from levy, execution, attachment, garnishment, or any other remedy whatsoever provided for the collection of debt. No waiver of any exemption provided for in this section shall be valid PROVISION FOR PAYMENT OF BENEFITS -- (a) An employer or an association of employers shall secure temporary disability benefits for their employees in one or more of the following ways: (1) By insuring and keeping insured the payment of temporary disability benefits with any stock, mutual, reciprocal or other insurer authorized to transact the business of disability insurance in the State; or (2) By depositing and maintaining with the state director of finance, securities, or the bond of a surety company authorized to transact business in the State, as are satisfactory to the director securing the payment by the employer of temporary disability benefits according to the terms of this chapter; or (3) Upon furnishing satisfactory proof to the director of his or its solvency and financial ability to pay the temporary disability benefits herein provided, no insurance or security or surety bond shall be required, and the employer shall make payments directly to his employees, as they may become entitled to receive the same under the terms and conditions of this chapter; or (4) By a plan, entitling employees to cash benefits or wages during a period of disability, in existence on the effective date of this chapter. (A) If the employees of an employer or any class or classes of such employees are entitled to receive disability benefits under a plan or agreement which remains in effect on January 1, 1970, the employer, subject to the requirements of this section, shall be relieved of responsibility for making provision for benefit payments required under this chapter until the earliest date, determined by the director for the purposes of this chapter, upon which the employer has the right to discontinue the plan or agreement or to discontinue his contributions toward the cost of the temporary disability benefits. Any such plan or agreement may be extended, with or without modification, by agreement or collective bargaining between an employer or employers or an association of employers and an association of employees; provided the benefits under the plan or agreement, as extended or modified, are found by the Director to be at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this chapter. (B) Any other plan or agreement in existence on January 1, 1970 which the employer may, by his sole act, terminate at any time, or with respect to which he is not obligated to continue for any period to make contributions, may be accepted by the director as satisfying the obligation to provide for the payment of benefits under this chapter if the plan or agreement provides benefits at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this chapter and does not require contributions of any employee or of any class or classes of employees in excess of the amount authorized in section , except by agreement and provided the contribution is reasonably related to the value of the benefits as determined by the director. The director may require the employer to enter into an agreement in writing with the director that until the employer shall have filed written notice with the director of his election to terminate such plan or agreement or to discontinue making necessary contributions toward the cost of providing benefits under the plan or agreement, he will continue to provide for the payment of the disability benefits under the plan or agreement. Any plan or agreement referred to in this paragraph may be extended, with or without modification; provided the benefits under the plan or agreement, as extended or modified, are found by the director to be at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this chapter; or (5) By a new plan or agreement. On or after January 1, 1970 a new plan or agreement with an insurer may be accepted by the director as satisfying the obligation to provide for the payment of benefits under this chapter if the plan or agreement provides benefits at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this

18 chapter and does not require contributions of any employee or of any class or classes of employees in excess of the amount authorized in section , except by agreement and provided the contribution is reasonably related to the value of the benefits as determined by the director. Any such plan or agreement shall continue until written notice is filed with the director of intention to terminate the plan or agreement, and any modification of the plan or agreement shall be subject to the written approval of the director. (b) During any period in which any plan or agreement or extension or modification thereof authorized under subsection (a)(4) or (5) provides for payments of benefits under this chapter, the responsibility of the employer and the obligations and benefits of the employees shall be as provided in the plan or agreement or its extension or modification rather than as required under this chapter; provided the employer or insurer has agreed in writing with the director to pay the assessments imposed by section (c) If any plan or agreement authorized under subsection (a)(4) or (5) covers less than all of the employees of a covered employer, the requirements of this chapter shall apply with respect to his remaining employees not covered under the plan or agreement. (d) As used in subsection (a)(4) and (5), "benefits at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this chapter" means the temporary disability benefits under any plan or agreement whose component parts (waiting period for illness, waiting period for accident, duration of benefits, and percentage of wage loss replaced) add in total to cash benefits or wages which are determined by the director to be at least as favorable as the disability benefits required by this chapter. The insurance commissioner shall establish a set of tables showing the relative value of different types of cash benefits and wages to assist the director in determining whether the cash benefits and wages under a plan are at least as favorable as the temporary disability benefits required by this chapter. (e) Any decision of the director rendered pursuant to this section with respect to the amount of security required, refusing to permit security to be given or refusing to accept a plan or agreement as satisfying the obligation to provide for the payment of benefits under this chapter shall be subject to review on appeal in conformity with the provisions of this chapter. (f) In order to provide the coverage required by this chapter for employers otherwise unable to obtain or provide such coverage, the insurance commissioner may, after consultation with the insurers licensed to transact the business of disability insurance in this State, approve a reasonable plan or plans for the equitable apportionment among such insurers of employer applicants for such insurance who are in good faith entitled to but are unable to procure such insurance through ordinary methods and, when such a plan has been approved, all such insurers shall subscribe thereto and participate therein; provided, however, that the commissioner shall not, for insurance issued or in connection with any such plan or plans, require or allow the use of premium rates which are either inadequate or excessive in relation to the benefits to be provided. Any employer applying for such insurance or any insured under such plan and any insurer affected may appeal to the commissioner from any ruling or decision of the manager or committee designated to operate such plan. All orders of the commissioner in connection with any such plan shall be subject to judicial review as provided in chapter 91. (g) All insurers shall in form prescribed by the director notify employer applicants who are unable to procure the required insurance through ordinary methods, the availability of the plan described in (f) above NOTICE OF INSURANCE -- If payment of disability benefits is provided for in whole or in part by insurance pursuant to section , (a)(1), (4), or (5), the employer or insurer shall forthwith file with the director in form prescribed by the director a notice of his insurance together with a statement of benefits provided by the policy. If an employer or insurer fails to file the notice of insurance within 30 days after purchase of insurance, the director may levy a penalty of not more than $10 for each delinquent notice, unless good cause for failure to file can be shown by the employer or insurer INSURER'S REQUIREMENTS; FAILURE TO MAINTAIN A CLAIMS SERVICE OFFICE; PENALTY; INJUNCTION -- (a) Each insurer shall maintain a complete claims service office or engage an independent claims adjusting service as its claims agent in this State with draft authority for the processing of temporary disability insurance payments. (b) If an insurer fails to comply with subsection (a), the insurer shall be subject to a civil penalty of not less than $2,500 or $100 for every day during which such failure continues, whichever sum is greater, to be recovered in an action brought by the director in the name of the State, and the amount so collected shall be paid into the special fund created by section The director, in the director's discretion, for good

19 cause shown, may remit all or any part of the penalty in excess of $2,500, if the insurer in default forthwith complies with subsection (a). With respect to such actions, the attorney general shall enforce this subsection if so requested by the director. (c) If any insurer violates subsection (a) for a period of thirty days, the insurer may be enjoined by the circuit court from carrying on the insurer's business any place in the State so long as the violation continues. The action for injunction shall be commenced by the attorney general if so requested by the director AUTHORITY TO WITHHOLD CONTRIBUTIONS, RATE OF CONTRIBUTION, MAXIMUM WEEKLY WAGE BASE -- (a) Subject to the limitation set forth in subsection (b) an employer may deduct and withhold contributions, from each employee of one-half the cost but not more than.5 percent of the weekly wages earned by the employee in employment and the employer shall provide for the balance of the cost of providing temporary disability benefits under this chapter over the amount of contributions of his employees. Unless a different rule is prescribed by regulation of the director, the withholding period shall be equal to the pay period of the respective employee. (b) Weekly wages for the purposes of this section shall not include (1) Wages earned by an employee in employment during any payroll period unless, during the fifty-two weeks immediately preceding such payroll period, the employee has earned wages of at least $400 and has been in employment for at least fourteen weeks during each of which the employee has received remuneration in any form for twenty or more hours; and (2) Remuneration in excess of one fifty-second of the average annual wage in the State as determined for the preceding year pursuant to section (b) multiplied by the factor 1.21, which amount the director shall cause to be published annually prior to the first day of January following the determination. (c) The contributions of the employees deducted and withheld from their wages by their employer shall be held in a separate fund or be paid to insurance carriers as premiums, for the purpose of providing benefits required by this chapter. (d) The director shall have authority to prescribe by regulation the reports and information necessary to determine the cost of providing temporary disability benefits under this chapter, especially in the case of employers or employer associations providing such benefits by means of self-insurance, and to determine the procedures for the determination of such cost. (e) An employee from whose wages amounts greater than those authorized by this chapter have been withheld by his employer shall be entitled to a refund or credit of the excess as prescribed by regulation of the director. (f) The contributions of employees deducted and withheld in amounts greater than those authorized by this chapter, shall be deposited in the special fund for disability benefits if such employees are no longer with the employer and cannot be located. A refund of the excess shall be paid from the special fund for disability benefits to the employees when they are located or if such employees remain unlocated for a period of two years from the date of deposit, such monies shall become a part of the special fund. (g) If an employer fails to provide coverage for his employees after deducting and withholding contributions from his employees as prescribed by this chapter, he shall deposit such contributions in the special disability fund PAYMENTS OF PREMIUM FOR INELIGIBLE EMPLOYEES NOT PERMITTED -- An insurer providing benefits for the employees of an employer or an association of employers, shall not require the payment of premiums from such employer or association of employers for employees who do not meet the eligibility requirements of section However, in the case of employees who concurrently work for more than one employer and are deemed eligible to receive benefits by combining the wages earned and hours worked of the two or more employments, the insurer shall require the payment of premiums in accordance with section The employers or association of employers shall ensure that eligible employees with concurrent employments are provided the required coverage. \ PAYMENT OF DISABILITY BENEFITS -- Benefits provided under this chapter shall be paid periodically and promptly and, except as to a contested period of disability, without any decision by the director. The first payment of benefits shall be paid within ten days, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, after the filing of required proof of claim. Thereafter, benefits shall be due and payable every two weeks. The director may determine that benefits may be paid monthly or semimonthly if wages were so paid, and may authorize deviation from the foregoing requirements to facilitate prompt payment of benefits. If an employer or insurer fails to make the first payment of benefits within ten days, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, after the filing of required

20 proof of claim, the director shall, unless good cause can be shown, require the employer or insurer to pay such benefits plus an additional ten percent of the benefits due and payable to the employee NOTICE OF DENIAL -- No employer or insurer shall deny disability benefits to an employee without first submitting a copy of the notice of denial to the department. The department shall review the denial within ten days of the receipt of the notice. If the department finds the denial erroneous, without proper legal basis, or without sufficient evidence to support it, the department shall request the employer or insurer to reconsider its action in denying disability benefits. If upon reconsideration the employer or insurer again decides to deny disability benefits, the employee and the department shall be so notified. The employee shall have the right to appeal the denial of disability benefits SUBROGATION RIGHTS IF EMPLOYEE ENTITLED TO WORKERS' COMPENSATION BENEFITS OR INDEMNITY UNDER EMPLOYER'S LIABILITY ACTS - - (a) If an individual has received temporary disability benefits under this chapter during a period of disability for which benefits for any disability under the Workers' Compensation Law of this State or of any other state or the United States are subsequently awarded or accepted in any agreement or compromise, the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, as the case may be, providing such temporary disability benefits shall be subrogated to the individual's right to such benefits in the amount of the benefits paid under this chapter. In the event more than one employer or insurer have subrogation rights to the employee's workmen's compensation benefits, such benefits shall be divided proportionately among the employers or insurers according to the amount of benefits each employer or insurer paid under this chapter. Should the subrogated amount of either one or both employers or insurers total less than the amount of benefits that such employers or insurers paid under this chapter, neither the employee nor the special fund for disability benefits nor any other source shall be required to make up the difference. To protect its subrogation rights to benefits payable under the Workers' Compensation Law of this State, the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, providing temporary disability benefits shall file a claim with the division of workmen's compensation in the department and notify the insurer for workmen's compensation or the employer, if self-insured, of its claim and thereupon the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, providing temporary disability benefits shall have a lien against the amounts payable as benefits for disability under the Workers' Compensation Law in the amount of the benefits paid under this chapter during the period for which benefits for disability under the Workers' Compensation Law have been accepted or awarded as payable. The agreement or award shall include a provision setting forth the existence and amount of such lien. (b) If an individual has received benefits under this chapter during a period of disability for which he is entitled to receive indemnity payments for wage loss under any applicable employers' liability law of this State or of any other state or of the United States, the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, providing temporary disability benefits shall be subrogated to the individual's right to such indemnity in the amount of the benefits paid under this chapter and may assert its subrogation rights in any manner appropriate under such acts or any rule of law SUBROGATION RIGHTS AGAINST THIRD PARTIES -- If an individual who has received benefits under this chapter is entitled to recover damages from a third person who is responsible for the sickness or accident causing the disability, the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, providing disability benefits shall be subrogated to, and have a lien upon, the rights of the individual against the third party to the extent that the damages include wage loss during the period of disability for which temporary disability benefits were received in the amount of such benefits. If the individual commences an action against such third party, the individual shall notify his employer, or the director if the individual is unemployed, of the action and the court in which it is pending. The employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits, providing disability benefits may join as party plaintiff or claim a lien on the amount of any judgment recovered by the individual in such action to the extent of its subrogation rights. If the individual does not commence the action within nine months after the commencement of the sickness or the date of the accident causing the disability, the employer, the association of employers, the insurer, or the special fund for disability benefits,
