  2. Has a disability which has been verified and accepted by the CSU's third party administrator (TPA) for workers' compensation insurance as industrially caused, and

  3. Has chosen to receive IDL benefits in lieu of Workers' Compensation Temporary Disability benefits, or has failed to make a choice within fifteen (15) days from the date of the notice of benefit eligibility, and

  4. Has been unable to work as a result of injury or illness since:

    1. the third calendar day of disability following the day of injury or illness, or

    2. the first day the injured employee leaves work as a result of an injury resulting from a criminal act of violence against the employee, or

    3. the first day of hospitalization, or

    4. the day following the injury if the employee is absent from work for more than 14 calendar days because of the injury.

An employee shall become entitled, regardless of his/her period of service, to receive IDL payments in lieu of Workers' Compensation Temporary Disability (TD) payments with/without supplementation of appropriate leave credits.
