Guidance re: COVID-19 Workers Comp
If you become ill or are injured because of your job, you may be entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits. This coverage includes the cost of all reasonable medical care and/or hospital bills, wage compensation benefits if you are temporarily disabled, and permanent disability benefits of applicable.
If you become injured or ill, you must notify your supervisor immediately. Your supervisor will complete the Work Related Injury/Illness Form and provide to you the Claim Form DWC 1 within 24 hours of their knowledge of your injury/illness. Late reporting could delay or jeopardize Worker's Compensation benefits.
All CSU work related injuries/illnesses are managed by a third party administrator, Sedgwick CMS. The adjustor assigned to our campus will contact the injured worker and supervisor regarding each injury to obtain additional information. Your cooperation in answering their questions and providing pertinent details is critical in the review and acceptance of your workers' compensation claim.
For staff or faculty, Med Stop* or Sierra Vista* are the designated local facilities for work related injuries unless an employee has completed a predesignation of personal physician form and it has been filed through the Worker's Compensation Analyst.
