Workers Compensation

All employees of Morningside University are covered by the Iowa Workers Compensation Insurance Law.

Coverage is automatic upon employment.  Workers Compensation Insurance is paid for entirely by the university.

Reporting an Accident

If you are injured at work or while performing a job-related function required by the university, you must report the accident to your supervisor immediately and complete an Incident Report Form. In addition, please contact Cindy Welp in Human Resources at 274-5114.

A witness statement should be completed by employees who witness an injury or accident incurred by a fellow employee.
