Worker’s Compensation

health benefits

The Virginia Worker’s Compensation Act covers injuries and illnesses that arise specifically as a result of an individual's job duties or while on official college business. Accidents must be reported immediately to your supervisor to ensure coverage.

If medical attention is required, a list of panel physicians is provided to the employee. Any unauthorized medical treatment will not be covered. All payments for injuries and illnesses are considered to be in a pending status until a compensability decision is given.
