If an employee is in an accident or has an injury on the job, the Workers’ Compensation packets should be completed. Find all packets here. If an employee experiences an accident or injury and decides not to file a claim immediately, they should complete a Near Miss form in order to establish the event. All forms are in Seamless Docs and will be sent immediately to the appropriate Human Resources personnel upon submittal.
Workers’ Compensation claims should be routed to us within one business day of an accident or injury. Serious or unusual injuries should be called in immediately.
If the employee is not able to complete their portion of the packet due to injury, the supervisor can fill out the packet and make the report on their behalf until the employee is able to sign the forms.
Supervisors also need to fill out their portion of the packet found in the above link, as well as print or email the third portion of the packet to give the employee. This information is legally required to be provided to the employee.
The first visit to the clinic or emergency room is to establish the Workers’ Compensation claim and will be paid by the County. Employees are encouraged to seek medical attention immediately if they are injured or involved in an accident.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding Workers’ Compensation claims, please contact Human Resources at (919) 705-6595. You can also see the policy regarding Workers’ Compensation here.
