Workers' Compensation Claims

The City of Stockton is "self-insured" for Workers' Compensation benefits.  This means the City pays benefits directly to injured employees, rather than purchasing an insurance policy that would pay benefits.


All employees of the City are eligible to receive Workers' Compensation benefits if injured or made ill by their job.  There is no qualification period for eligibility, such as working a minimum time period or a minimum number of hours per week.  If an employee believes he or she was injured on the job, a claim for benefits can be filed with the employee's supervisor.


Effective December 15, 2012, the City of Stockton implemented a Medical Provider Network (MPN) Program.  This has been implemented in an effort to control the costs of Workers' Compensation claims.  City Employees who are not in sworn Public Safety positions will automatically be enrolled into an Integration Program if they have a Workers' Compensation Claim.  This program will ensure that employee's pay is made whole through the use of accrued leave balances, until these balances are exhausted.  Employees who do not wish to participate may opt-out, but this decision is final and the employee would not be allowed to opt back in or vice versa.
