If you can’t work due to a job-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation pays your medical bills and provides compensation to replace lost wages until you can return to work. The Workers’ Compensation Program provides benefits to the employee no matter who was at fault. It is important that a work-related injury or illness is reported to your supervisor or the Workers’ Compensation Coordinator (WCC) immediately. Delay in reporting may jeopardize your benefits.
Injuries on the Job
Emergency or After Hours
In an emergency, contact University Police at x3114 or dial 911 from a campus phone. University Police will dispatch emergency services to assess and/or transport the injured employee. For injuries after hours, dial 911.
Notify your supervisor immediately. It is important to report injuries as soon as possible in order to receive the best medical care possible.
Your work-related injury can be examined and treated by the designated workers’ compensation facility unless you have a Pre-Designated Physician Form on file with the WCC, then you can visit the pre-designated physician of your choice.
