Workers Comp

Workers compensation benefits are provided to UHCL employees through the State Office of Risk Management (SORM), in accordance with regulations set by the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission (TWCC).  Workers’ compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that pays medical bills and replaces some lost wages for employees who are injured at work or who have work-related diseases or illnesses.

The University has internal reporting procedures that employees and supervisors are required to follow in order to ensure the required state reporting requirements are met.​
