All employees are covered under workers’ compensation insurance, which provides for benefits in case of certain on-the-job injuries.
Each person is required to report any occupational accident or illness to the appropriate supervisor immediately. Record of Occupational Injury and Illness forms, which are used to report any occurrence of an on-the-job accident, are available in the Human Resources Office.
An employee sustaining an on-the-job injury requiring medical attention should, where appropriate, be treated at the Student Health Center. In the event the Student Health Center is closed or follow-up treatment is required off-campus, the employee is required to notify the provider of treatment that their injury is work-related.
Additional information, including the employee occurrence report form, is available on the HR portion of the myAU portal site.
