Description

  Line of Duty Act; short-term disability benefits for state police officers.  Provides that a state police officer who incurs a work-related injury in the line of duty shall receive supplemental short-term disability coverage providing income replacement for 100 percent of the officer's creditable compensation for up to one calendar year. At the end of the one-year period, the officer would be eligible for supplemental long-term disability benefits, which provide income replacement at 60 percent of the officer's creditable compensation.  Currently, the maximum period that an eligible employee generally may receive short-term disability benefits, before getting long-term disability benefits at the 60 percent rate, is 125 work days. Amends § 51.1-1121, § 9.1-401.1, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
