[01/29] County of Nevada v. WCAB
California Labor Code section 4850, which guarantees certain public safety employees who are disabled from an on-the-job injury "a leave of absence while so disabled without loss of salary in lieu of temporary disability payments," does not apply to an employee who has returned to work, albeit on modified duty, because in such a case there is no leave of absence, which is a foundational prerequisite to the application of section 4850's no-loss-of-salary guarantee.
