When does WC payments kick in?

WC pays 60% of the employee’s wages and 40% must be covered by the employee’s accrued leave.

WC payments do not kick in until 5 days missed from work, so for the first 5 days of absence the employee have to use accrued leave. If the employee is out 20+ days, the first 5 days are refunded through insurance.
