Two employees collide into each other while walking at work. One employee gets hot tea spilled on their arm. The employee sees a doctor and is cleared to work but claims he can't work and goes home for the rest of the day. He returns to work the next day. Is it recordable?
NO. The recommendation made by a licensed health care professional, and the actions of the employer are determinative for recordkeeping purposes, not the opinion of the employee. Since the licensed healthcare professional cleared the employee for work, it is not considered days away from work if the employee took an optional day off.
