Policy

In accordance with the Arizona Workers’ Compensation Act, the university provides specific benefits to student employees who are injured while performing work-related duties or who incur work-related illnesses. These benefits include:

  1. medical attention
  2. hospital care

    and

  3. compensation for temporary and/or permanent disability in relation to the salary received at the time of injury.

A student employee who is injured or becomes ill while performing work-related duties should report the injury or illness to his or her supervisor to ensure proper handling of the claim and, if necessary, seek medical attention immediately. The supervisor must complete the necessary reports and forward them to Human Resources within five days from the date of injury.

A student employee who incurs a work-related injury or illness should report directly to the student health facility at his or her campus for initial treatment, unless the illness or injury is serious or the university facility is not open. When a student employee is treated by a private physician or at a hospital, the attending physician must sign a release statement. The student employee must present the release statement to his or her supervisor before returning to work.
