Overview of Workers' Compensation Laws,
Benefits, and Procedures
A Quick Reference: On-the-Job Injuries
Supervisors: Please feel free to print this reference
guide and post it where your workers can see it.
Tell your supervisor about the injury immediately.
Get immediate medical attention. You must receive treatment
at the designated medical center
for your campus unless the nature of the injury dictates otherwise.
Tell the doctor you were injured on the job.
As soon as possible, complete an Employee Injury Report and
give it to your supervisor.
Give your supervisor any statements you receive from your doctor
concerning your condition, or your return to work status.
If your doctor says you must miss work due to the injury,
complete a Workers' Compensation Benefits Election form at the
bottom of the Employee Injury Report, stating whether you want
to use annual leave and/or sick leave, or receive Workers' Compensation.
