Please follow the protocols of Clarendon District Three as outlined in the Workers Comp Process Flow Chart when seeking workers compensation.
Important Things to Remember Regarding Workers Compensation
- Employees must seek medical attention from the designated medical care provider. The exception to this is dental and eye care.
- Extensive diagnostic testing such as an MRI requires prior approval.
- An employee must be absent from work due to the incident for seven or more days for an employee to receive workers compensation payroll.
- If an employee misses work for fifteen or more days, workers compensation may pay for all days missed.
- If workers compensation pays for salary / wage, it pays at 66.67% of regular salary.
- Employees are responsible for keeping the Clarendon District Three finance / benefits office informed of patient progress.
- Once the medical care provider releases an employee to return to work with no restrictions, the workers compensation file is closed.
