(a) Once approved, the inmate shall receive lost-time wages until the inmate:
(1) Is released;
(2) Is transferred to another institution for reasons unrelated to the work injury;
(3) Returns to the pre-injury work assignment;
(4) Is reassigned to another work area or program for reasons unrelated to the sustained
work injury, or is placed into Disciplinary Segregation; or,
(5) Refuses to return to a regular work assignment or to a lighter duty work assignment
after medical certification of fitness for such duty.
(b) An inmate medically certified as fit for return to work shall sustain no monetary
loss due to a required change in work assignment. Where there is no light duty or regular work assignment available at the same rate
of pay as the inmate's pre-injury work assignment, the difference shall be paid in
lost-time wages. Lost-time wages are paid until a light duty or regular work assignment at the same
pay rate as the inmate's pre-injury work assignment is available.
