Workers Compensation

Worker's Compensation is handled by the District Office Risk Management Department.
All information can be found on the Risk Management web site.

The Maricopa Community Colleges provides, at no cost to the employee, Industrial Compensation Insurance. A work related injury or illness is one in which the injury or illness arises out of the course of your employment during working hours. Any injury to an employee during working hours must be reported immediately to their supervisor. The Supervisor's Report of Industrial Injury and the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA101) forms must be completed and forwarded to the Risk Management Office at the District Office within 48 hours of the injury.

When medical attention is needed, pursuant to ARS 23-908 Sec. E, the employee proceeds to the nearest Concentra Medical Center (CMC) or HealthWorks Medical Walk In Center (HW MWI) for initial treatment of the injury. If there is a life threatening situation, call 911 for ambulance transport to the nearest hospital emergency room.

Any employee covered under a policy manual and absent due to an industrial accident resulting in injury or illness to the employee will be allowed up to thirty (30) days of absences without loss of pay and without loss of current or accumulated sick leave. During this thirty (30) day period the district will pay the employee the difference between the wage loss benefit check received under the Industrial Compensation laws of the state to equal his/her daily rate of pay. Beginning the thirty-first (31st) day, sick leave will be reduced by the amount of the difference between the total salary of the employee and the wage loss benefit check received by the employee. The employee will also cease accruing illness hours. At the exhaustion of all illness hours, the District will cease to pay the difference between the benefits check and the employee's full rate.

Upon return to work, the employee must provide the Risk Management Office and the Benefits FMLA Department with a Doctor's release to return to full duty. If the employee is released to light or modified duty, the medical release must indicate physical limitations and approval for return to work must be granted by the employees immediate supervisor. When an employee returns to work and needs additional follow up visits for therapy, sick leave must be used.

Report ALL accidents and incidents, even if medical treatment is unnecessary.
