Workers' Compensation

USF provides coverage through the Travelers Indemnity Company for employees who experience work-related injuries and illnesses. Workers compensation is intended to provide medical care and wages for lost time resulting from work-related injuries and illnesses caused by an employee’s work.

Procedures

In the event of a life-threatening or limb-threatening medical emergency, call (415) 422-2911 if working on campus or 911 if working off campus. Additionally and immediately after a work work-related injury or illness occurs, you must inform:

Failure to report an injury or illness in a timely way may jeopardize or delay your rights to certain benefits.

Medical Provider Network

A provider in the Medical Provider Network (MPN) must be used for treatment unless you have pre-designated a personal physician for treatment of work-related injuries or illnesses. To pre-designate a provider for such instances, you must have the provider sign the pre-designation form and submit it to Human Resources at leaves@usfca.edu before reporting an incident. The pre-designation form starts on page four of Travelers’ Workers’ Compensation Benefits document, which can be accessed from the HR forms web page under the "Workers’ Compensation" section.
