Workers' Compensation

About Worker's Compensation

The University of California strives to provide a safe working environment for all employees and to minimize the adverse impact of work-related injuries. Workers' Compensation is a state mandated benefit for employees with work-related injuries and illness, awarded without regard to who is at fault. California's Workers' Compensation laws are intended to ensure that employees receive prompt medical treatment, among other benefits, when they are injured on-the-job. Under Workers' Compensation, an injury must meet the test of both arising out of employment and occurring during the course of employment to be compensable.

Workers' Compensation covers the full range of employees at the University, including: faculty, staff, student employees, limited appointment employees, and registered volunteers

Employer's First Report (EFR)

Employer's First Report (EFR) is an online incident management application that allows supervisors, administrators and department representatives to submit, monitor and report initial injury causes, as well as verify corrective actions taken to reduce the likelihood of recurrence. 

If you have questions or require assistance with completing EFR, please contact the Workers' Compensation office or call (951) 827-5528. 

Anyone can report a work related injury or illness using EFR: supervisors, co-workers, and individuals.
