Worker's Compensation

Any employee injured on the job in any capacity must contact his/her principal/supervisor or campus health care provider immediately. A workers’ compensation First Report of Injury must be completed the day of the injury.  The campus or department contact will document the date, time, and location of the injury through the online injury report system at www.tasbrmf.org.  All injuries need to be reported to the Risk Management Coordinator, Victoria Henderson at victoria.henderson@manorisd.net before medical treatment is received, if possible. Injury reports must be completed immediately upon the employee’s return to work, if unable to complete prior to treatment.

 

What is Worker's Compensation?

Workers' Compensation is a State-Regulated Insurance Program that:

  •  Pays reasonable medical costs if you are injured on the job
  •  May pay income benefits to replace part of the wages you lose because of an on-the-job injury
  •  Pays income benefits if you have a permanent impairment from an on-the-job injury 
  •  Pays death benefits to your legal beneficiaries if you are killed on the job

 

Workers' compensation will replace 70% or 75% of an employee's lost wages, depending on hourly rate, if the injury or illness causes the employee to lose all of his/her income for more than seven days. An employee becomes eligible for Temporary Income Benefits (TIB) on the eighth day that a work-related injury or illness causes the employee to lose all of his/her usual pay.
