Workers' Compensation

The purpose of the Workers' Compensation program is to coordinate and manage claims relating to work injuries sustained by University employees. Some aspects of the claims process include: reporting an injury, obtaining medical treatment, and returning the employee to work. University policy and procedures can also provide guidance, especially in areas, such as time & leave and payroll issues.

Furthermore, this section maintains the WC database, which contains information relating to each WC claim.

It is the ultimate goal of this section to return the employee to work as quickly and efficiently as possible.
