State of Vermont Employees: What should you do if you have been injured on the job?

  • Call 911 in a serious medical emergency
  • Report your injury to your supervisor immediately
  • Your supervisor must complete a Vermont State Employee's Workers' Compensation Report online as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours following the injury.  Your completed report will be transmitted to CorVel. An adjuster from CorVel will be contacting you to discuss the claim.
  • Call or email Risk Management  to discuss any safety concerns who will discuss with CorVel's loss control department for follow up.

Who should report the injury?

The employee's manager, supervisor or other designated workers compensation claim reporters. Injured employees CANNOT report their own claim to CorVel. A report MUST be filed by a manager/supervisor or a designated reporter.

When should an injury be reported?

Any work-related incident should be reported as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours following the injury.

How do I report an injury?

Before submitting a claim, please read the attached instructions.



Is the VT Dept of Labor (VDOL) first report of injury (form 1) still required?

You do not need to complete a VDOL First Report of Injury (Form 1) except to use as a reference for reporting the claim online.

Am I required to see a designated medical provider for my first visit?

Yes, if you are a Department of Corrections (DOC) employee you will use Telemed through Concentra. If you are not a DOC employee you will use the Telemed services offered by CorVel.

If a telemedicine platform is technologically unavailable, you must seek treatment at one of our designated medical providers. The Designated provider list can be found here.

Telemed procedures can be found here: Telemed Procedures

Under Vermont Department of Labor's Workers' Compensation Rule 4.110, an employer may designate the treating health provider to initially treat an injured employee immediately following a compensable injury.
