New Information and Procedures Regarding Workers' Compensation Claim Submission

The University has developed a new online reporting system for Workers' Compensation claims. It was created to help make filing Workers' Compensation claims easier, and ensure timely notification to University departments positioned to help the injured employee. The new system is available online at https://webapps-prd.oit.umn.edu/froi/index.html . The electronic First Report of Injury (eFROI) requires no specific training, and uses the familiar 'x.500' log-in procedure. The best practice is for the supervisor to complete and submit the eFROI. The First Report of Injury form should be completed within one business day of notification of an incident, and the Supervisor Incident Investigation Report form should be completed within three business days.  The Office of Risk Management and Insurance will continue to support the paper version.

Please share this information with all supervisors so they know of their responsibilities. There are important steps involved with a work related incident.  Supervisors should familiarize themselves with the policy and procedures found at:
If you have any questions, please contact your CLA Human Resources Consultant (Margaret Yzaguirre or Wendy Lane), or the Workers' Compensation Area Claim Reporting Contact designated for the Twin Cities area.
