Worker’s Compensation

Injury or Illness at Work

Getting Started: Steps Taken When Staff Member or Student Worker is Injured

Step 1

Employee Tasks

What if you are injured at work?  It is your responsibility to report the injury to the supervisor on duty promptly after the injury has occurred. Detailed information related to what worker’s compensation covers and benefit impacts can be found here.

Supervisor Tasks

It is your responsibility to ensure that the employee’s first injury/illness report and the supervisor analysis and questions are given priority when an injury occurs. For an overview of supervisor’s responsibilities in the worker’s compensation process, click here.
Step 2

Send signed and dated forms to Human Resources

Both signed and dated forms, along with answers to the supervisor questions, should be sent to Human Resources, Dempsey Hall 328, within 24 hours of the injury. If need be, fax the paperwork to (920) 424-2021 before sending originals to Human Resources. If it is a work-related death, please contact Human Resources immediately. If, due to the injury, the chair/supervisor or employee are unable to complete the forms within 24 hours, immediately contact Jodi Anthony below to inform her of the details of the injury.

Forward all physician return-to-work forms and reports to Human Resources upon receipt

These forms will indicate the date a faculty/staff member may return to work with or without restrictions and must be filed with Human Resources. For each physician visit, a return to work form should be submitted including if the diagnosis is to return to work with no restrictions. Physician documentation and return to work forms should be submitted to:

Step 3

Timecard/leave reporting should indicate any lost time due to a work related injury

If lost time occurs, it is important that the timecard/leave report indicates those days off of work. Jodi Anthony may assist with how time should be recorded on the timecard/leave report on a case-by-case basis.

Upon receipt of the injury reports, Human Resources will review for completeness and submit to the Office of Safety and Loss Prevention

The UW Oshkosh Safety Coordinator will review all injury reports for evaluation of safety practices on campus. The UW System Worker’s Compensation Coordinator will contact the employee injured with details of the claim. Jodi Anthony  will be the liaison between the Office of Safety and Loss Prevention and the employee. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding claims, please call Jodi Anthony in the Office of Human Resources.
