Workers' Compensation

If an employee is in an accident or has an injury on the job, the Workers’ Compensation packets should be completed and HR should be notified.

1. Employees must fill out their packet if the injury is non-emergent. If the injury is emergent, the employee can do this at a later time.

2. Upon notification, the supervisor should fill out the supervisor's packet. Print the packet and provide the medical evaluation authorization to the employee and direct the employee to obtain a prescription card from HR if they will need one. 

The first visit to the clinic or emergency room is to establish the Workers’ Compensation claim which will be paid by the County. Employees are encouraged to seek medical attention immediately if they are injured or involved in an accident. 

If an employee experiences an accident or injury and decides not to file a claim immediately, they should complete an Incident Report form in order to establish the event. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Workers’ Compensation claims, please contact Human Resources at (919) 988-6475 or
