Workers’ compensation is a mandatory insurance program which provides for payment of medical expenses and lost wages for employees who suffer work-related injuries or illness. Ohio state law regulates what benefits are due to an injured employee. Capital University pays the full cost of the workers’ compensation program and contracts with CompManagement Health Systems to administer the claims.
Employees should report all injuries to a supervisor immediately and complete and submit an Initial Injury Report to the Human Resources Office as soon as possible. IF THE INJURY IS LIFE-THREATENING OR TREATMENT CANNOT BE DELAYED, CALL 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM. For all other injuries or illnesses, please call the Human Resources Office to obtain an injury Report Kit with medical care provider information.
