YOUR CHURCH provides its staff members with a comprehensive workers’ compensation insurance program at no cost to the staff member.
The workers’ compensation program covers injuries or illnesses that might happen during the course of employment that require treatment of any kind. Subject to legal requirements, workers’ compensation insurance begins after a waiting period. If a staff member is hospitalized, benefits begin immediately.
All staff members are required to report all work-related injuries to their ministry area leader immediately, regardless of how minor the injury may seem. Prompt reporting ensures that staff member is treated without delay and helps to ensure a proper investigation is performed as to the cause of the incident.
Workers’ compensation covers only work-related injuries and illnesses. Neither YOUR CHURCH nor its insurance carrier will pay workers’ compensation benefits for injuries that might happen to a staff member participating in non-work-related activities.
