WORKERS' COMPENSATION SERVICES


The County of Kern's workers' compensation program is self-insured and self-administered.  Workers' Compensation Services manages all of the workers' compensation claims for the County of Kern.  Claims Adjusters will assist injured employees and their employing departments with the workers' compensation process.

Employees are protected by California Law for injuries arising out of employment or during the course of employment. Among other rights, an industrially injured employee has a right to medical treatment reasonably required to cure or relieve from the effects of the injury. Prompt reporting of all work related inuries and illnesses is essential!

Department payroll/human resources staff will work closely with the Claims Adjuster during the course of a claim.

The County of Kern has adopted a "Return-to-Work" policy. This policy includes a temporary limited duty component as well as a consideration for modified or available alternate work for employees who are permanently incapacitated for the performance of their regular jobs.
