Workers' Compensation is a state-mandated benefit for employees who become injured on the job. Some benefits available are:
- Medical Treatment to help recover from the effects of the injury.
- Temporary Disability Payments if an injured worker loses time from work due to the injury.
- Permanent Disability Payments if an injured worker has a permanent disability as the result of a work injury. The benefit amounts are set by law based on the severity of the disability.
Notify your supervisor as soon as possible. Your supervisor will initiate the claim filing process. If your injuries require medical treatment, you must use one of the City's designated medical treatment facilities.
How are workers' compensation benefits paid for?
The City of Miramar is self-insured, which means that our workers' compensation costs come out of the City's budget. As a result, the cost of workers' compensation claims are charged back to the annual budget of the department where the employee worked at the time of the injury.
