Workers Compensation

Northwestern Michigan College provides Workers' Compensation coverage for all employees.  Any injury on the job should be reported to the Office of Human Resources immediately.

Any employee injured on the job must receive authorization from Human Resources prior to seeking medical treatment unless it is a serious medical emergency.

It is the policy of NMC to offer employees who are receiving worker's compensation payments the option of using paid leave time to equal the difference between their regular gross pay and the workers compensation payment. For more details on the payroll procedures, contact the Office of Human Resources.
