Workers' Compensation Insurance

Workers’ Compensation - - General Information

Workers' compensation is a no-fault system designed to provide benefits to employees injured as a result of their employment activities and to limit the liability of employers. Because it is a no-fault system, the employee does not need to prove negligence on the part of the employer to establish liability. It also means the employer cannot use negligence on the part of the employee as a defense to a claim.​​​​​

Worker’s Compensation Goes Digital

Goodbye paper forms, Hello E-form! 

Effective May 1, 2024, SPPS will no longer be accepting paper copies of First Report of Injury (FROI) forms. Instead, the first report of injury will be found on PeopleSoft under FORMS.  The E-form can be completed by the Injured Employee OR the building clerk OR the injured worker's supervisor.

The E-form will auto-populate personal information which means there will be 14 fewer blanks to fill out. While this e-form is very user-friendly, a PDF guide and video will are found on the right side of the page to answer further questions. Specific questions not answered in the training materials can be sent to workcomp@spps.org

What happens after you submit an E-FROI?

You will get an automatic reply email to confirm that our worker's compensation team has received your form. If you did NOT seek medical care this will be the only email you receive. If you DID seek medical care, our worker's compensation team will reach out shortly with claim information.

We appreciate your use of this new e-form to help cut down on the response times and questions that come after an injury!

Basic Benefits

Workers’ compensation provides four basic types of benefits:

  • Wage loss;
  • Compensation for the loss of use of a part of the body;
  • Medical benefits; and
  • Vocational rehabilitation services.

Healthcare Providers

Employees may choose their own licensed healthcare provider under most circumstances. Treatment by certain unlicensed complementary and alternative healthcare providers is not paid. Prescriptions and mileage to medical appointments may also be reimbursed. 

Third-Party Administrator

Any entity which administers, for compensation, a self-insurance plan.
