Workers’ Compensation law provides employees with help if they are injured or become ill because of their job. This includes serious injuries as well as first aid only injuries*.
All work related injuries or illnesses must be reported to the supervisor and Human Resource Services. If you wait too long, you may lose your right to benefits.
