Executive Management Short Term Disability

Executive Managers may be entitled, with the determination by the Deputy County Executive with responsibility for the Employee Services Agency, to receive short term disability benefits. The Deputy County Executive with responsibility for the Employee Services Agency may require proof of disability as is deemed appropriate.

If an executive manager, excluding those in elective office, becomes subject to a disability which continues uninterrupted for 45 calendar days, the County may, with the approval of the Deputy County Executive with responsibility for ESA, pay disability income to such person for the remaining period, following the initial 45 days, during which disability continues uninterrupted for a maximum of 12 calendar months, excluding the initial 45 days, or until the disability ceases, whichever comes first. Proof of continued disability must be provided upon request. As used herein, disability means total disability from disease or accidental bodily injury that wholly prevents engaging in the performance of each and every duty of the position.
