Workers' Compensation

The University will make reasonable provisions for the safety and health of employees during working hours. All employees are eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits in the event of an on-the-job injury. This coverage is automatic and immediate. An on-the-job injury is defined as an accidental injury suffered in the course of your work, or an illness which is directly related to performing your assigned job duties. This job-injury insurance is paid for by Robert Morris University. If you cannot work due to a job-related injury or illness, Workers' Compensation insurance pays your medical bills and provides a portion of your income until you can return to work. (Please note that the University's insurance carrier will make the final determination as to the compensability of an illness/injury.)

All injuries or illnesses arising out of the scope of your employment must be reported to your supervisor and the Human Resources Department. Prompt reporting is the key to prompt benefits. Ensure your right to benefits by reporting every injury, no matter how slight. Utilize the following procedure if you have a work-related injury:

Please note that in an emergency situation (risk of loss of life or limb), Moon Campus employees should call Public Safety at 412-397-2424 to arrange for ambulance transportation to the nearest emergency room. Employees at the Island Sports Center or other locations outside of Moon Campus should call 911.
