Worker’s Compensation


In compliance with the Indiana Worker's Compensation Laws, each employee is covered in the event of an injury on the job. The employee is to immediately contact the Human Resources Department and complete the required forms. Most medical expenses and partial salary will be paid by Worker's Compensation.

Safety: All accidents which include any event that is not expected, foreseen, or intended, must be reported immediately to your supervisor. The accident must be reported whether or not there is personal or physical damage involved. A near miss, where the potential for injury or damage exists, is to be reported as well. Accidents and near misses are investigated to eliminate unsafe conditions and unsafe acts. If your supervisor is not available, report the accident or near miss to your department manager or Human Resources.

Any injury that happens on the job or on University property or while conducting University business, no matter how slight, must be reported immediately so you may receive prompt and proper medical attention.

If an injury requires you to be absent from work or to incur medical costs, you must contact the supervisor for the appropriate forms to be completed and processed for workers' compensation.



This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
