What is counted in figuring out whether or not a worker has lost more than one day of work due to an on-the-job injury? Is the date of injury counted?

Yes, the date of the injury is counted. If a worker loses time from the job on the date of the injury, that time should be counted when determining the number of days lost from work. For example, if a worker lost a half-day on the day he or she was injured and then the next day, he or she would be deemed to have missed two days of work.

It is important to note that time lost from work does not need to be consecutive.
