US Department of Labor Regulations state that time spent by an employee in waiting for and receiving medical attention on the employer’s premises or at the direction of the employer during the employee’s normal working hours on days when he is working constitute hours work.  Under the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act, your employer must pay you for time missed from work when required to treat for a work related injury. Therefore, if you were sent off site for medical care and are asked to clock out, your employer must pay you for time missed from work due to the appointment.  Also, if this time missed from work brings your pay above the threshold where overtime pay is required, you are entitled to overtime pay for this time missed for attending doctor’s appointments.
