Workers' Compensation

Here at Southwest Tennessee Community College, employee safety, security and well being are a high priority. We take every measure to provide the safest work environment possible for our employees, and we strive to ensure that injuries and accidents are rare occurrences.

Effective September 1, 2014, the State of Tennessee Workers' Compensation Program is now administered through CorVel, which will be the new Workers' Compensation Third Party Administrator (TPA). If you experience a workplace injury, you need to report the injury to your supervisor immediately and the both of you need to call the Nurse Hotline number 866-245-8588. If it is a life threatening workplace injury, call 911 immediately. A nurse will assess your situation and advise you what to do.

If you have a job-related injury that does not require medical attention, or you choose not to seek medical attention, you must contact the Office of Public Safety at 901-333-4242 (Macon Cove Campus) or 901-333-5555 (Union Avenue Campus) to file an official report of the injury with the College.

If you have any questions or concerns about your Workers' Compensation benefits, please contact Human Resources at 901-333-5340.
