Legalese Defined: Workers Compensation – No Compensable Lost Time (NCLT)

In workers’ compensation cases, No Compensable Lost Time (or NCLT) means that you have not lost any time beyond the statutory waiting period (the first seven days of any disability) as a result of your work related injury. This can occur either when you are:

  • a) back to work
  • b) out of work due to a non-work related disability or,
  • c) out of work AND not disabled due to a work related injury.

You are not paid workers’ compensation benefits during periods of NCLT.
