Workers' Compensation Program

​​​The Workers' Compensation Program administers the Master Agreement (PDF) between The Department of Human Resources and the State Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund). The Workers' Compensation Program also:

  • Works with all participating agencies to establish procedures and resolve disputes related to the agreement.
  • Reviews and monitors all program costs associated with the services provided under the agreement.
  • Oversees statewide policy and procedures regarding departmental compliance with workers' compensation laws.
  • Provides workers' compensation and return-to-work training.
  • Serves as a resource for technical questions and information in all areas related to workers' compensation and return-to-work issues.

Information regarding workers' compensation training classes and quarterly meetings can be found on the Workers' Compensation Training Resources webpage.

CalHR, State Fund, and the departments partnered to create the Master Agreement Guidelines​  to govern the interactions between State Fund and the departments, define roles, and set minimum expectations.
