Compensation lost as a result of accidents incurred during performance of official duties is covered in part under Arizona Workers' Compensation and Occupational Disease Statutes. (See also Chapter 10, Benefits.) If an injured employee wishes to use sick leave, the employee may receive only the difference between what is paid by benefits as salary compensation under the above-mentioned statutes and the full salary to which the employee would otherwise be entitled.
