In accordance with State law, the College carries Workers' Compensation Insurance for all faculty members. It is important that any injury, however slight, incurred on duty be reported immediately to the Department Chair and the Human Resources Office in order to comply with the provisions of the law.
When compensation payments are made by the insurance company, the College will make up the difference between the amount paid and the faculty member's salary as long as the faculty member has active status. Extended absence due to injury incurred while on duty may prompt the College to request disability insurance benefits for the faculty member following six full months of absence. Supplemental salary payments made by the College will cease upon approval for long-term disability benefits.
