    Employee Workers' Compensation Information & Workplace Injury Form

    Incidents and injuries are unfortunate, but are a part of the workplace. You cannot lose your job because you reported an incident or if you are injured at work.  Please refer to your union contract for more detailed information regarding benefits available to you while out on Workers’ Compensation.

     

    All employees who experience an accident or incident must report it to the District.  For those employees with District-issued user ID's, you must report this electronically.  Please scroll down the page and click on the green button to begin the process. 

     

    Those employees who do not have a District-issued user ID, you must use the paper report located in Related Files at the bottom of the screen.  

     

    If you need help finding a Health Care Provider who is authorized by the Workers' Compensation Board to treat injured workers, please consider one of the PMA partners: WC Providers in WNY This list is not a complete list of WC providers, and injured workers are encouraged to consider other potential providers to meet their medical needs.  

     

    If you wish to exercise your right to legal representation the New York State Workers' Compensation Board provides a listing of licensed professionals who practice Workers Compensation Law: Finding Legal Representation. Please be aware that if there is a money award in your case, your attorney or licensed representative may ask for a legal fee, which must be approved by the Board. Any legal fee will be deducted from your award and paid directly to your attorney or licensed representative by the insurance carrier. 

    If you have any further questions, please email WorkersComp@buffaloschools.org or call the Workers' Compensation Desk at 816-3936.

     

    Accident/Incident Reports should now be completed with the electronic link below. Your employee information will auto-populate. Upon completion of the accident/incident details the report will be electronically routed to the Benefits Office, your Supervisor and our Third Party Administrator (PMA). In addition, a claim number will be send directly to you vial email. 

     

    If you are injured at work it is always advisable to seek medical attention immediately. You will not be charged with the time off on the date of injury. Future appointments require use of your own accruals unless your doctor disables you from work.
