    If you are injured on the job, you have certain rights, benefits and responsibilities. Your employer also has obligations and responsibilities regarding all employees. The main focus of DoF, RM&ESD's Workers' Compensation unit is to assist job-related injured workers in receiving immediate and quality medical care, to administer workers’ compensation claims from the initial injury until the closing of the claim, and to safely return lost time employees to productive employment. We believe that a healthy, safety conscious and productive county is the result of healthy, safety conscious and cooperative employees.
