Information on Disability
If your staff member is away from work for seven consecutive days (including weekends and holidays) due to an illness or injury, they must apply for Short-Term Disability (STD). You can only pay the employee a maximum of five consecutive sick days.
The employer must complete the STD EMPLOYER STATEMENT and attach a copy of the employee’s JOB DESCRIPTION. Please note that once you had submitted the scanned copy of the STD form(s), there’s no need to mail the original form(s).
You, as the employer, must provide us with the employee’s actual gross salary from the first of the month until the last day that they had been paid.
NOTE: Please send it electronically via email. The original copy is NOT required in our office.
Email the forms to AAbadillo@cisva.bc.ca. Once the employee’s back to work full-time, you must provide us with the exact date that they came back to work and the gross salary they will earn from the first day of their return to work to the last day of the month. For any specific questions or concerns regarding a disability claim, please contact our office.
