Kept on Salary

KOS

SITUATION

Controlling worker’s compensation claims costs by paying Kept on Salary (KOS) benefits to an injured/ill team member who was injured while performing work related activities and will be away from work on a continuous basis. KOS is the continuation of the injured team member’s regular wages while they are away from work due to a work related injury/illness. This practice saves money in time loss exposure under the workers’ compensation claim.

ACTION

Use the Washington KOS (WA KOS) timecode to code the injured/ill employee’s timecard for occupational injuries only while the injured/ill team member is away from work continuously . This timecode is for use for Washington team members only and should not be used for any other purpose.
