Workers' Compensation

Employees of the Chancellor's Office are covered for any injury/illness arising out of or in the course of employment, at no charge to the employee. Sedgwick CMS is the plan administrator for workers' compensation.

If an employee qualifies for workers' compensation, all approved medical bills will be paid in addition to any temporary or permanent disability payments to which an employee is entitled.

If an employee is unable to work as a result of a work-related injury or illness, he or she may elect to receive Industrial Disability Leave (IDL) in lieu of temporary disability payments. IDL provides full pay for the first 22 days of disability, with two-thirds pay for the next 11 months of disability. Employees disabled for 14 days or less do not receive IDL for the first three days (waiting period) unless hospitalized.

All job-related injuries or illnesses should be immediately reported to the employee's supervisor or Human Resource Services (1-4070). Employees will be given an "Employee's Claim for Workers' Compensation Benefits" form to complete and return to HR Services.

The Chancellor's Office has designated a medical facility (map) to provide medical treatment for the first 30 days from the date of injury. However, if prior to an injury, Human Resource Services has been provided with a Pre-designation Form (.pdf) naming a personal physician, employees may seek medical care from this physician immediately after injury. Under Labor Code Section 4600 (d) the designated physician must (1) be the employee's primary care physician, (2) have treated the employee in the past, (3) retain his or her medical records (including medical history), and (4) agree to be predesignated.
