Workers' Compensation

A collection of employee benefits mandated by the State Labor Code for work-related injuries or illnesses.

When a claim is filed with Disability Management Services, Sedgwick CMS conducts an investigation to determine the validity of the claim. When a claim is approved, Sedgwick CMS makes all necessary claims-related arrangements and any payments. Disability compensation payments are made directly to the injured worker. Employees who are injured on the job must notify their supervisor immediately that they have been injured, and describe the nature and cause of the injury. When a person in a supervisory position has any knowledge that an employee may have incurred an occupational injury, that supervisor is obligated to give the employee an Employee Incident Report (EIR) and to complete the Supervisor Incident Report (SIR) within 24 hours. These forms should be immediately forwarded to Disability Management Services.
