What is Workers' Compensation?

If you are injured or become ill because of your job, you may be entitled to Workers' Compensation Benefits. The Workers' Compensation Program at California State University, Fresno will pay the cost of all (reasonable) medical and hospital bills necessary to treat you for a work-related injury. An injury or illness can be caused by an event such as a slip and fall or by repeated exposure over time, such as repetitive keyboarding.

It is important to report your injury timely, if you wait too long you may lose your right to benefits. See the Employee Information section for details.

NOTE: The University will not be responsible for payment of workers' compensation benefits for an injury that occurs from your voluntary participation in any off duty, recreational, social or athletic activity that is not part of your regular work duties.
