Yes, in Wisconsin workers comps covers missed work, if an injured worker has a work-related injury or condition. As a legal and practical matter, an injury or condition is going to be considered work-related if the treating physician says so. When an injured worker has missed work with a doctor's excuse stating that the man or woman either cannot work at all or can only work with restrictions (and the employer cannot accommodate those restrictions) he or she is halfway to receiving worker's compensation benefits. The other half of the equation is the doctor must also state causation - the reason for the inability to work is work-related. Work-related means the injury was caused directly by an on the job traumatic incident or aggravated beyond normal progression by a traumatic accident, or the work-related condition was caused in part by on the job duties over time.
