Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation laws prescribe certain medical, hospital, disability compensation, rehabilitation, and death benefits to be paid in the event of injury or death due to work-related accidents or illnesses. Boston University pays the full cost of insurance to cover these benefits. You are automatically covered by this insurance while you are employed by the University.
If you are injured while you are at work, report the injury to your supervisor immediately. Remember, minor injuries (which at the time may seem trivial, but may later require medical attention) may also be covered, provided they are reported when they occur.
