Workers’ Compensation is an accident insurance program that may provide an employee with medical care, rehabilitation, and income to compensate for lost wages when an employee is injured on the job.
It may also provide financial payments to an employee’s dependents if an employee dies from a job-related injury.
The Workers’ Compensation Program covers all full-time, part-time, salaried, and hourly wage employees.
Each employee or his or her representative shall, immediately upon the occurrence of a work-related accident, or as soon thereafter as practical, notify their supervisor. If the immediate supervisor is unavailable, notice should be given to the next available supervisor within the chain of command. Failure to report an accident within thirty (30) days after the accident occurred may result in loss of workers’ compensation benefits.
It is the supervisor’s responsibility to notify the Workers’ Compensation Unit of all on-the-job injuries requiring medical care or lost time from work. Such notice should be given within 24 hours.
