Workers' Compensation

What is Workers' Compensation?

If you are injured on the job you may be eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits. When work-related accidents or injuries happen, employers are required by state law to make sure an injured employee is provided necessary protection and care.

Benefits may include payment for medical treatment, replacement of lost wages during periods of disability, and compensation for permanent disability. Injured employees should immediately report any on-the-job injury to their supervisor and seek medical treatment. All injuries must be reported, regardless of their severity. If you have additional questions, please contact USCB's Humans Resources Office.
