3 Temporary disability insurance which provides benefits to covered workers disabled by injury or illness
which is not work-connected is mandatory under State laws in California, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode
Island.
Establishment plans which m eet only the leg a l requirements are excluded from these data, but those
under which (1) employers contribute more than is leg a lly required or (2 ) benefits exceed those specified in the
State law are included.
In Rhode Island, benefits are paid out o f a State fund to which only employees
contribute.
In each o f the other three States, benefits are paid either from a State fund or through a private plan.
State fund financing: In California, only employees contribute to the State fund; in New Jersey,
employees and employers contribute; in New York, employees contribute up to a specified maximum
and employers pay the difference between the em ployees' share and the total contribution required.
Private plan financing: In California and New Jersey, employees cannot be required to contribute
more than they would if they were covered by the State fund; in New York, employees can agree
to contribute more i f the State rules that the additional contribution is commensurate with the
benefit provided.
Federal legislation (Railroad Unemployment Insurance . A c t) provides temporary disability insurance
benefits to railroad workers for illness or injury, whether work-connected or not.
The legislation requires
that employers bear the entire cost o f the insurance.
4 A n establishment is considered as having a form al plan if it specifies at least the minimum number
of days of sick leave available to each em ployee.
Such a plan need not be written, but informal sick leave
allowances determined on an individual basis are excluded.
