Worker’s Compensation – Important!: 

Pre-designate your physician prior to any injury occurring. Classified employees may designate their personal physician for treatment of work-related injury or illness. The employee must provide the proper form to the employer prior to the injury.Please make sure your doctor agrees to the pre-designation. Pre-designation forms are available on CSEA’s website at www.csea.com.

Click on the Issues Tab, select Your Rights and then select Workers Compensation. The Physician Pre-Designation Form is at the bottom of the page under Resources.

If you are injured on the job, contact your supervisor and fill out an incident report immediately. Keep a record of all time missed due to the injury and a log of all medical appointments. If you are having problems with your claim, you may need a worker’s compensation attorney. Please call the Legal Referral Program at CSEA to obtain the name of an attorney in your area.
