Employees of the Hall County Library System are covered by Worker‘s Compensation medical coverage when performing normal functions of their jobs. Any employee who is injured on the job, whose injury results from reckless behavior, being under the influence of alcohol or illegal controlled substances, or deviation from the normal work assignments, may jeopardize their coverage under Worker‘s Compensation and receive no benefit.

Should an employee be injured on the job, it is the responsibility of the employee and the supervisor to complete Worker’s CompReport of Injury form. It is the responsibility of the supervisor to provide the employee with prompt medical attention (if deemed necessary), allowing the employee to select a physician from the posted medical panel displayed on the bulletin board in the break room of each branch, and to notify the library director and Human Resources or Administrative Assistant.
