Workers' Compensation

An employee who has a work-related injury or illness that meets the definition under Workers' Comp will receive Workers' Compensation Leave and weekly compensation benefits.

The basics are described below. Contact your supervisor or human resources representative if you have any questions or would like a copy of the policy or Workers’ Compensation Employee Handbook.

  • Workers' Compensation coverage applies to full-time employees, part-time employees and temporary employees.
  • If you are injured on the job or have a work-related illness, notify your supervisor immediately and complete the proper forms as soon as possible.
  • Employees who have a work-related injury or illness are entitled to Workers' Compensation leave, medical benefits and compensation payments.
  • The benefit payments will be approximately 66 2/3 percent of the employee's regular salary (up to a certain limit).

In addition to all of the medical benefits under Workers' Compensation in the policy above, DHHS educators are also eligible for benefits under G.S. 115C-338. This benefit allows educators to receive full salary continuation for up to one year from the date of a work-related injury and benefits begin on the first day of disability (no seven-day waiting period).
