Workers’ Compensation

If employees sustain a occupational injury or illness, they should immediately call CorVel at 877-764-3574.

When you call CorVel, you will be connected with a registered nurse who will:

  • Obtain necessary information
  • Evaluate the nature of your injury or illness
  • Determine your immediate medical needs
  • Provide you with further instructions including where you may find the nearest DPS designated medical provider

If your occupational injury or illness is a life or limb-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency provider.

Notify your supervisor of your occupational injury or illness as required by your school and/or department. We strongly recommend notification to your supervisor within 24 hours of the injury.

Wage Continuation Policy

WCP – Wage Continuation Period — If an employee is injured on the job within the course and scope of his/her employment, and the injury or illness is covered by workers’ compensation as required by law and due to that occupational injury or illness the employee is unable to work, the employee will continue to be paid his/her pre-injury salary/benefits during a Wage Continuation Period (“WCP”). The WCP is defined as four (4) calendar months from an employee’s date of injury, or through the date of employee’s termination, or through the end of their work year; whichever is sooner. An employee will not be charged with any earned vacation leave or sick leave for any approved time missed due to a workers’ compensation covered injury or illness during the WCP. Consult Risk Management with questions.

FMLA, if available, will run concurrently with any missed time due to an occupational injury or illness.
