  • 3. What is the rate that I am paid while out of work on Workers' Comp?

    Posted by:

  • 4. How do I pay for my employer sponsored benefits while I am receiving Workers’ Compensation?

    Posted by:

    While you are out of work, you will not be paid wages from WS/FCS, as you are receiving the insurance benefit from the insurance company. Because our benefits are normally paid via payroll deduction, you will have to manually pay by check for your costs of your benefits. Contact Payroll Benefits to make arrangements to pay for your benefits.

    Also, since you are not making contributions to the NC Retirement System while not receiving a pay check from WSFCS, you WILL NOT earn any service credits as long as you are out of work. When you return to work, you can purchase those service credits back. Contact the NC Retirement System for more information about purchasing service credits at (877) 627-3277. While you are out of work, you do not accrue sick or annual leave. However, when you return to work after being on Workers’ Compensation you will be credited the amount of leave that you would have earned while out of work. You must return to work to take advantage of this benefit.

  • 5. Do I get to choose my doctors?

    Posted by:

    The NC Industrial Commission states that your employer will direct your medical care if you are injured on the job. WSFCS has authorized Novant Health Urgent Care to provide our initial treatment. You may not change treating physicians unless you are referred to another physician by the last authorized treating physician and they obtain approval from the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Carrier.

  • 6. Am I reimbursed for travel to and from the doctor?

    Posted by:

    The NC Industrial Commission stipulates that employees are entitled to mileage for medical treatment at the current rate per mile beyond a 20 mile radius (round trip) from the point of origin. A form 25T must be completed for reimbursement.

  • 7. Will I have to pay back my Worker's Compensation benefits?

FAQs
  • FAQs for Part-time Employees & TAs
  • 1. Can you explain Employment Options for PRT's and part-time Teachers?

    Posted by:

    These teachers are no longer employed on a contract. They are in temporary positions that end at the end of each school year, and are not guaranteed positions for the next school year. Once we finalize allotments and the list of any FT teachers needing an assignment has been cleared, principals can offer positions to part-time teachers as they deem appropriate to their allotments and the needs of their schools. Part-time teachers wishing to transfer to another school may e-mail the principal at that school informing them of their interest. Part-time teachers wanting to move into a full-time teaching position in the coming school year should contact Kathy Furr (Staffing Specialist) or Brenda Bourne (HR Director) informing them of their interest.
