​5.7.4 Workers’ Compensation

​​​​​​​​​​​Any work-related injury or illness is covered under workers' compensation. Employees are covered under a self-insured plan approved by the state. Employees must promptly​ re​port any injury to the person in charge; see Reporting an Injury or Accident in Health and Safety​. They are asked to refer to the medical providers network​ ("MPN") when seeking medical treatment. The location must give the workers' compensation form to the employee within 24 hours. For additional information about medical providers, see WellComp​. The person in charge must contact the Insurance Department​​ to assist in handling an employee's workers' compensation claim.
