What is Workers Compensation & Short-Term Disability?

Workers' Compensation & Short-Term Disability is a process that involves the handling of work-related accidents and related processing of worker's compensation, short-term disability pay and medical leave of absence. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that pays monetary benefits to workers who become injured or disabled in the course of their employment. Short-term disability insurance, on the other hand, is designed to protect an individual's full or partial wages (typically 40 to 70% of pre-disability base salary) during a time of injury or illness, not related to work, that would prohibit the individual from working. This process includes risk management reporting, communications with insurers and health care providers, and the processing of short-term disability benefits (employees and managers should be notified of status changes and the short-term disability process). Medical/provider service bills and any medical releases should be monitored until employee is back on full duty.
