The Workers' Compensation program provides state-mandated benefits to LAUSD employees who sustain a work-related injury/illness without fault. LAUSD is self-insured, which means that the District, not an insurance company, pays for claims' actual costs. The District contracts with a third-party administrator for the management of its claims.
The Workers' Compensation Department is committed to providing support, assistance, and resources to employees during these unprecedented times. The safety and well-being of all employees is a priority for the Workers' Compensation team. Please do not hesitate to contact the Workers' Compensation Department if you have any questions about your workers' compensation claim in this time of physical distancing. The team continues to work remotely, and they are responding promptly to e-mails. Please send your inquiry or request via e-mail to WorkersCompensation@lausd.net.
