Workers Compensation

Northeastern Junior College is committed to meeting its obligation under Colorado's Workers' Compensation Act to provide medical, rehabilitation, and wage-replacement benefits to employees who sustain work-related injuries or illnesses.

It is imperative that we all work together to help you return to work as soon as physically possible. Helping employees recover from an injury is in the best interest of both the employee and Northeastern Junior College.

What constitutes an injury?
Any time you are injured or incur an illness coincidental with the job, it is considered a worker's comp. claim. This includes injuries from falling while on campus or falling in the parking lot when arriving or departing from work.

What to do when an injury occurs:

If the injury causes lost time from work:
If the injury causes you to be away from work for at least three days, there will be a lost time injury claim.

If you have any questions about worker's compensation, please contact a human resources representative at 970-521-6730.
