The purpose of the Workers' Compensation Division is two-fold. First, for the employee who sustains an on-the-job injury, it establishes a liaison between the manager, the physician and the insurance carrier. This includes a claim of injury, assisting with health care appointments, filing insurance reports and attending hearings and informal conferences. Assistance is also provided when returning the employee to transitional duty assignments post-injury.

Secondly, the Division manages the contract with the health care providers for employee health services. This includes post-injury examinations, OSHA and other required physical examinations and provides medical care and/or referral to other health care providers for the injured employee.
