UMM Workers Compensation
This policy is intended to provide employees with a comprehensive response to on-the-job injuries/illnesses, prompt medical care; a timely return to work; and an effective management of workers’ compensation benefits. Minnesota Statutes cover the management of workers’ compensation claims, Chapter 176 in addition to administrative rules.
Procedures have been established for reporting injuries, seeking medical attention, and communicating work status. Not reporting injuries in a timely manner can delay employees’ medical treatment and payments and can result in monetary penalties being imposed on the University.
University employees must promptly report on-the-job injuries/illnesses to the employee's supervisor. Within 24 hours of the employee’s report the supervisor shall complete the First Report of Injury and the Employee Incident Report forms and forward these to the UMM Payroll Office.
Although the Office of Human Resources can be most helpful if you contact us directly regarding your concerns, you may report legal and policy violations confidentially using Ethicspoint.
