Workers' Compensation

Calvert County Public Schools’ employees are provided Workers’ Compensation benefits through Maryland Association of Board of Education (MABE) Claims Unit. Information regarding these benefits is contained in the negotiated agreements. Guidelines for employees to follow when a work-related accident, injury or illness occurs are as follows:

  • Immediately report the incident to the building site administrator (Principal, Vice Principal, Director) where the work-related accident, injury or illness occurred.

  • Complete and provide the “CCPS Employee Statement of Accident, Injury or Illness” form to the building site administrator.

  • You will then be provided with MABE’s claim information, including the claim number, adjuster and contact information for MABE Claims Unit.

  • If needed, seek medical attention.  If emergency care is needed, you may be transported to the hospital or to your personal physician by ambulance or by a family member, if unable to drive yourself.  No staff member is authorized to transport you.  

  • Notify your immediate supervisor and the Human Resources Department if you are unable to return to work, or if a physician recommends light or restricted work duties. You continue entering absences in EAC (Employee Access Center).  Absences are charged against your accrued leave before leave without pay.  You may also qualify for Family and Medical Leave Act job protection.

  • Prior to returning to work, you must provide the Human Resources Department with the physician’s release, to include returning to full duty with no restrictions; or, if restricted, what the restrictions are and for what period of time.  All supporting medical documents must be provided to the Human Resources Department.

  • Temporary Transitional Return to Work Program may be available if restrictions apply. 

  • Contact the Human Resources Department for more information regarding workers compensation.
