Disability Programs
Purchased Disability/Accident Insurance
Short- and long-term disability and accident insurance policies may be purchased by benefits-eligible County employees through payroll deduction. Details  (PDF)
State Disability Insurance
Most employees (notable exceptions are Deputy Sheriffs, Firefighters, and Management) are covered by State Disability Insurance. This program is administered by the State of California and provides for certain benefits during a doctor-certified disability.
Return to Work Program
It is the policy of the County of Kern to provide employees who have suffered occupational injuries, which temporarily limit their ability to perform normal job duties, with temporary limited duty assignments.
It is also the policy of the County of Kern to provide reasonable accommodation to employees who are permanently incapacitated for the performance of their job duties (whether or not the disability is job caused) with modified or available alternate work which is within their medical restrictions and for which they are qualified.
The complete Return to Work policy is contained within the Kern County Administrative Procedures Manual, Chapter 1.  (PDF)  For further information contact the Risk Management Division of County Counsel at (661) 868-3801.
