Reminder about Workers Compensation Procedures
Any faculty, staff, temporary, or student employee who sustains a work-related injury or illness is required to report the incident immediately to their supervisor. In turn, the supervisor is accountable for reporting the circumstances surrounding the work-related injury/illness to HRD by completing an Accident/Incident Investigation Form[i] immediately following the accident/incident.
This form must be submitted within 24 hours of the accident/incident to HRD via email (email@example.com) or fax (860.768.4732). HRD will then submit a First Report of Injury and coordinate claims processing with the University’s Workers’ Compensation insurance carrier.
The University participates in the Connecticut Medical Managed Care Plan, with approved network providers[ii] available to treat work-related injuries/illnesses. Failure to use a network provider for a work-related injury/illness may result in denial of medical and/or lost wage benefits.
