Workers’ Compensation provides benefits to employees of ISU who sustain job-related injuries or contract occupational diseases or conditions. This includes student employees, work-experience students doing internships, and authorized volunteers. Benefits are in the form of compensation for 100% of medical expenses and partial compensation for time-loss from work.
In Event of an Injury
Call 911 immediately. Injured employee should be transported by ambulance to the nearest emergency facility for immediate medical attention.
- Injured employee should immediately notify their supervisor, no matter how small the injury.
- The injured employee should work with their supervisor to fill out a Supervisor's Accident Report. Email the signed report to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours, where possible. These reports should be kept on file in the department.
Seeking Medical Treatment:
