407.2 Employee Injury on the Job

If possible, an employee may administer emergency or minor first aid. An injured employee will be turned over to the care of the employee's family or qualified medical employees as quickly as possible. The District is not responsible for medical treatment of an injured employee.
Employees shall report as soon as possible to their supervisor any accident or illness claimed to have resulted from work.
A work related injury, illness or death of an employee shall be reported by the employee, if able to report, or the employee's immediate supervisor, if the employee is unable to report, to the business office within twenty-four (24) hours of the injury on forms provided by the District.  If at all possible, the affected employee should supply the pertinent information to the business office.
The Board will maintain a worker's compensation insurance program that will provide to the employees of the District adequate coverage for personal injury or death under the worker's compensation laws of the State of Iowa.  It is the responsibility of the employee to file a worker’s compensation claim with the Board secretary.  An employee granted worker’s compensation will be entitled to wage benefits for work days lost as stipulated by the state of Iowa and the insurance program.
