The University, in accordance with the State of Michigan Disability Compensation Act, provides "Workers' Compensation benefits" if an employee is injured in the course of employment. These benefits are payable at a rate of approximately 80% of the after-tax value of the employee's average weekly wage, subject to a state-determined maximum rate.
Any injury arising out of and in the course of employment must be reported to the administrative head and Workers' Compensation. All necessary medical services for a compensable injury will be delivered by a medical provider designated by the University. Full information is available from MSU Human Resources Workers' Compensation, (517) 353-4434.
