Employees of Montana State University-Northern are covered by the University System Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Program. Workers’ Compensation pays for medical treatment costs and provides employees with wage loss benefits in case of job-related injury or illness. This coverage is provided at no cost to employees.
Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault system focusing on recovering an employee’s health and returning to work, rather than trying to establish legal fault for the injury. If you have a job related injury or illness, workers’ compensation pays for medical and rehabilitation expenses and lost wages if you are out of work.
