Salary adjustments due injured firefighters
Drahos v. Village of Johnson City, 80 AD2d 100
In Drahos the court held that a firefighter injured in the line of duty and unable to return to work is entitled to the full amount of his regular salary until he returns, citing Section 207-a of the General Municipal Law.
This provision, according to the opinion, includes increases and adjustments received by firefighters in active status during the period of absence.
It is assumed that the Court would grant similar treatment to police officers injured in the line of duty and otherwise eligible for equivalent benefits pursuant to General Municipal Law§207-c.
