I'm a flight attendant for Norwegian Air based in JFK and I broke the hand while I was on a layover in Europe. Since then I have been on medical leave for 2 months for now. I will come back to work in a month. So, totally it takes 3 months to recover. For first month I was paid a guarantee salary(1500$). After that I got the salary for 150$ only. I can't work anywhere with the injury. Means no extra income.
Retain local attorney with employment litigation and union experience. Are you a member of a union? Do you have an employment contract? Is there an FMLA leave policy or procedure with the company. Take all of these documents to your local counsel to guide you.
Getting hurt on layover while not in the performance of one's employment duties may not be a workers compensation issue. Speak to local employment counsel or union representative to get further insight.
You should definitely consult an attorney one on one to review everything and see if you have a case. Many attorneys will give you a free consultation.
