Workers' Compensation

Workers’ Compensation provides benefits and assistance to all employees who are injured or develop a job-related illness. The New York City Law Department/Workers’ Compensation Division serves as the insurance carrier for CUNY.

All employees are eligible for Workers’ Compensation. Coverage begins the first minute an employee is on the job and continues when an employee is officially off the job. The only requirement is that the individual is officially working as an employee providing a service to the college at the time of injury. Employees should report the incident to their supervisor, Campus Security and Public Safety, and the Workers’ Compensation Administrator (Office of Human Resource Services).
