Workers' Compensation Program

Workers' Compensation Program

The Workers’ Compensation Program is a self-insured program that provides state mandated benefits to injured County employees and other qualified recipients.

This program coordinates the benefit provision among all County departments and provides contract oversight of the private claims management firm administering day-to-day claims.

This program is actively engaged in an anti-fraud and loss prevention program.  The community is a partner in the anti-fraud program through its provision of information to the Office of Risk Management.  All information is reviewed.  After this review, suspicious information is turned over to the California Department of Insurance Fraud Program and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office for investigation and prosecution.

This office provides these benefits only to County employees and others who have been specifically designated by law or action of the Board of Supervisors. This is not a program open to the general public. If you are not a County employee and have been injured at your employment, contact your employer for assistance or you may also contact the State of California, Department of Industrial Relations at 1-800-736-7401 for more information.
