Call your supervisor and University Personnel within 24 hours to report a work-related injury, illness, or accident and for referral authorization to the appropriate medical treatment facility.
If you are unable to work due to a work related injury, report the absence immediately to your supervisor and University Personnel. A work status from the treating physician is required.
CSUMB has a strong interest in the timely and effective treatment of injured employees, prompt payment of benefits, and the exploration of an early return to work through temporary modified duty or alternate work.
University Personnel will assist in obtaining quality medical treatment, explaining benefits and options, and in exploring other measures to facilitate recovery from the effects of work-related injuries or illnesses to resume productive work as soon as feasible.
