What is the responsibility of employees to employers during a work-related injury?
When an employee loses time from work due to a work-related injury, the employee's supervisor or University of Texas System Workers' Compensation Insurance Workers' Compensation Insurance representative should be notified in writing from the injured employees' treating doctor indicating inability to work.
Employees are expected to return to work as soon as physically able. If the employee is released to return to work by the treating doctor with restrictions, it is the responsibility of the employer to comply with any restrictions or necessary accommodations for the employee.
Employers must communicate any other specific rules or policies for employees to adhere to following any work-related injuries.
