All University employees.
The purpose of this Policy is to establish a process for the reporting of workplace injuries.
Employees injured on the job must report the incident to their supervisor and to the Human Resources Director immediately so that they receive prompt medical attention. Similarly, employees are required to report work place incidents that do not result in injury to their supervisors and the Human Resources Director. Failure to immediately report injuries may result in denial of benefits and/or discipline.
Minor injuries may be treated on-site. Should the injury require the services of a physician/healthcare provider, employees will be sent to St. Elizabeth Business Health or to St. Elizabeth emergency department. If transportation is provided by the University, Campus Safety will transport the employee.
Written information regarding medical treatment or disability resulting from an on-the-job incident must be communicated promptly to the Director of Human Resources.
Employees able to return to work following necessary treatment will be expected to do so.
Any employee unable to complete his/her workday because of a work-related injury will be paid for the balance of his/her scheduled workday. Thomas More University may request a doctor’s certificate stating the employee was under his/her care for the particular date(s), any days could not work, and any restrictions upon the employee’s return to work.
