G)  1. When a certificated employee is absent from school as a result of personal injury occurring in the course of his or her employment as used and defined in the Workers' Compensation Laws of Maryland, the employee will be paid his or her full salary, minus the amount of any Workers' Compensation payments received for salary during the period of temporary disability, not to exceed a period of 60 calendar days. After 60 calendar days employees who still qualify for weekly disability payments will receive only the funds approved by the State Worker’s Compensation Board. An employee who is a participant in a rehabilitation program approved/administered by the Maryland Association of Boards of Education Workers’ Compensation Group Self-Insurance Fund may be given an extension by the Risk Manager or his or her designee. No part of such absence will be charged to the employee's sick leave. If approved, such personal injury leave will not exceed twenty-four (24) calendar months and will cease when the period covered by Workers' Compensation has expired.
