Temporary Light Duty 

It is the purpose of this policy to establish the authority for temporary light-duty assignments and procedures for granting temporary light duty to eligible officers and civilian personnel within this agency.

Temporary light-duty assignments, when available, are for officers and other eligible personnel in this agency who, because of injury, illness or disability, are temporarily unable to perform their regular assignments but who are capable of performing alternative duty assignments. Use of temporary light duty can provide employees with an opportunity to remain productive while convalescing as well as provide a work option for employees who may otherwise risk their health and safety or the safety of others by remaining on duty when physically or mentally unfit for their regular assignment. Therefore, it is the policy of this agency that eligible personnel be given a reasonable opportunity to work in temporary light-duty assignments where available and consistent with this policy.
