Workers' Compensation

The Workers’ Compensation departments at UCSF work closely with employees and management to help reduce the number and severity of work-related injuries in order to provide a safer work environment for all UCSF employees. 

What we do

California’s Workers' Compensation laws guarantee prompt, automatic benefits to workers injured on the job. The University of California is self-insured for Workers' Compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits are administered by Sedgwick, our third-party administrator.
