Voluntary Short Term Disability
All University employees are covered by Workers’ Compensation Insurance as of their date of employment, for which the University pays the full premium. Under the provisions of the North Carolina Worker’s Compensation Act, as amended, University employees are eligible for certain benefits in the event of a work-related accident resulting in temporary or permanent disability. Unless the work-related injury results in a disability of more than 21 days, the injured employee must use any accrued sick or vacation leave for the first seven (7) days of the period of time the employee is out of work.
When an injury occurs at work, the employee should inform his/her supervisor and (if the injury is not life-threatening) proceed immediately to Student Health Services. If the injury is serious or life-threatening, the employee should go directly to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Any employee injured while at work should report the incident to Student Health Services and be prepared to complete a drug test when filing a worker’s compensation claim.
