Workers' Compensation

If injury occurs on the job

Employees who are injured on the job should seek medical attention, notify supervisor within 72 hours and complete a Wyoming Employee Injury of Report Form within ten days and submit it to Human Resources. Detailed instructions are included with the form.

Workers' Compensation Rates effective July 1st

FY2016 FY2017
WC1 .0030 .0027
WC2 .0025 .0022
WC3 .0036 .0031
WC4 .0414 .0360

The definitions for the rates above and the process for debiting fringe benefits accounts for Workers' Compensation are as follows:

WC1 Clerical Rate X *gross salary, applies to support staff of institutions of learning who typically work in an office environment, whose duties do not include performing in a scientific laboratory environment.

WC2 Professional (without lab) Rate: X *gross salary, applies to professional faculty, administrators, and support personnel of institutions of learning who's duties do not include performing in a scientific laboratory environment.

WC3 Professional (with lab involvement) Rate: X *gross salary, applies to professional faculty, administrators, and support personnel of institutions of learning who's duties include performing in a scientific laboratory environment.

WC4 Non-Professional Rate: X *gross salary, applies to employees engaged in the care, custody and maintenance of university, college or school buildings, grounds and equipment; this rate also applies to safety and security personnel of the institution and any other personnel engaged in activities not defined as Professional (with lab involvement), Professional (without lab involvement) or Clerical.

All non-benefited employees, including students, should be placed in the appropriate rate instead of the "Clerical" rate. For example, if you have a student working in a lab, they will be placed in the "Professional with lab" category. Graduate Assistants will be placed in either the "Professional" or "Professional with lab" because their duties include either teaching or researching in a lab setting.

*Gross salary includes base pay, overtime pay, bonus pay, etc.

For employees paid from Section II funds, the monthly amount for Workers' Comp will be charged to the employee's fringe account that is associated with the account that they are paid from. Units and departments preparing budgets for grant submission should include the appropriate workers' comp rate into applications that will fund salaries. These costs must be included in future budgets. Section I employees will continue to have Workers' Comp paid from EPB's (Employer Paid Benefits).
