2017 ORS 656.212¹
Temporary partial disability

When the disability is or becomes partial only and is temporary in character:

(1) No disability payment is recoverable for temporary disability suffered during the first three calendar days after the worker leaves work or loses wages as a result of the compensable injury. If the worker leaves work or loses wages on the day of the injury due to the injury, that day shall be considered the first day of the three-day period.

(2) The payment of temporary total disability pursuant to ORS 656.210 (Temporary total disability) shall cease and the worker shall receive that proportion of the payments provided for temporary total disability which the loss of wages bears to the wage used to calculate temporary total disability pursuant to ORS 656.210 (Temporary total disability). [Amended by 1953 c.672 §2; 1995 c.332 §16; amendments by 1995 c.332 §16a repealed by 1999 c.6 §1; 1999 c.538 §1]

Note: See notes under 656.202 (Compensation payable to subject worker in accordance with law in effect at time of injury).

Notes of Decisions

Pay­ment of temporary partial disability benefits is re­quired only for loss of wages due to compensable injury, not for loss of wages due to claimant’s refusal to accept modified work. Madrigal v. J. Frank Schmidt and Son, 172 Or App 1, 17 P3d 555 (2001)
