Employee Self Service
Employee Self Service (ESS), gives employees the ability to view and maintain their employee information remotely.
On the Job Injury
Employees with an on the job injury are required to complete a Personal Injury /Property Damage Report as soon as possible after the injury. If the employee is unable to submit the report, the principal, supervisor, or school nurse should submit the report on the employee's behalf. Employees are encouraged to seek medical attention for any injury received on the job. School systems in Alabama are not covered by Workman's Compensation Insurance so the employee will need to use their personal health insurance for treatment.Employees with out of pocket medical expenses due to an on the job injury may file a claim for reimbursement with the Alabama Board of Adjustment by following the directions on the Alabama Board of Adjustment Claim Form. The claim form and all supporting documentation must be presented to the Alabama State Board of Adjustment within one year after the date of the injury.
