Workers’ Compensation

The purpose of the Workers’ Compensation program is to coordinate and manage claims relating to work injuries sustained by employees with the Justice Administrative Commission (JAC) and the agencies we administratively serve. Some aspects of the claims process include: reporting an injury, obtaining medical treatment, and returning the employee to work.

The ultimate goal is to return the employee to work as quickly and efficiently as possible.

All employees of the JAC and the agencies we administratively serve are covered under Risk Management's workers’ compensation program from their first day on the job. That includes full-time, part-time, and temporary employees.

Volunteer workers are covered for medical benefits. However, coverage is not extended to contracted employees, independent contractors, or vendors who provide services to state agencies.

Effective January 1, 2014, all work related injuries or illnesses are to be reported to AmeriSys at 800-455-2079.
