Workers' Compensation

OSHR administers the State’s self-insured workers’ compensation program for claims arising under North Carolina law excluding the Department of Public Instruction which has a separate program.

Eligible employees who experience a work-related injury or illness receive medical treatment and other benefits as provided under the Workers' Compensation Act and OSHR Workers’ Compensation Policy. The State is self-insured for workers’ compensation liabilities. OSHR contracts with vendor(s) to provide workers’ compensation claim administration and related services. Each State agency is responsible for paying individual claim costs.
