    All University of Georgia employees are covered by state Workers' Compensation laws, which may provide medical and          income benefits if you are injured on the job. Workers' Compensation also provides benefits to your dependents if you               die as the result of a job-related illness or injury.










If you suffer an injury while performing your job duties, you should immediately report the injury to your supervisor.

Employees are automatically covered under this program at no cost to the employee. No action is required on your part to enroll. View the workplace poster and the Bill of Rights regarding Workers' Compensation.


For employees working outside of the United States, refer to these international guidelines (PDF)












Supervisors should follow the instructions in the Supervisors' Guide to the Workers' Compensation Process.
