Workers compensation insurance is designed to cover all occupational injuries and illnesses. It is paid by the College and is effective from your first day of work. Workers compensation insurance provides benefits that may apply as a result of a work-related illness or injury. These benefit payments may cover expenses incurred for medical care, replacement of a portion of your income lost as a result of disability, and lump-sum payments to beneficiaries in case of death.
If you are injured while you are at work, or become ill as a result of your job, you must report this to your supervisor immediately. In all cases of work related injury or illness, no matter how minor, an Accident/Injury Report form must be completed and forwarded to the Office of Human Resources. This record-keeping is required by OSHA and MIOSHA.
