5. SALARIES AND BENEFITS
5.12 Workers' Compensation
All employees of the College are covered by Workers' Compensation, which pays for covered medical expenses incurred from accidents or illnesses that are job related. Any accident at the place of work must be reported promptly to the Department of Campus Safety, the Human Resources Office and the supervisor. An employee's failure to submit accident reports promptly may result in denial of a claim to benefits or delay in the payment of benefits. FMLA will run concurrent with any work-related injury.
The College uses a panel of physicians and other health care providers for all work related injuries. Employees must select a physician or other health care provider from the panel for treatment. In order to have medical treatment paid by the College’s insurer, the employee must continue to visit the physician or other health care provider for 90 days, if treatment is needed, from the date of the first visit.
