Existing law generally requires employers to secure the payment of workers’ compensation, including medical treatment, for injuries incurred by their employees that arise out of, or in the course of, employment. Existing law generally prohibits aggregate disability payments for a single injury occurring on or after January 1, 2008, causing temporary disability from extending for more than 104 compensable weeks within a period of 5 years from the date of injury. Under existing law, if an employee suffers from specified injuries or conditions, aggregate disability payments for a single injury occurring on or after April 19, 2004, causing temporary disability are prohibited from extending for more than 240 compensable weeks within a period of 5 years from the date of injury.

This bill would add an injury or condition occurring on or after January 1, 2012, where surgery or recovery from surgery occurs after 104 weeks of temporary disability benefits have been paid, provided that specified conditions are met, to the injuries or conditions for which aggregate disability payments for a single injury causing temporary disability are prohibited from extending for more than 240 compensable weeks within a period of 5 years.
