Workers' Compensation Claims

The City of Stockton is self-insured for Workers' Compensation.

All City employees are eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits. There is no qualification period for eligibility, such as working a minimum time period or a minimum number of hours per week. If an employee believes they were injured on the job, a claim for benefits can be filed with the employee's supervisor.

Effective December 15, 2012, the City of Stockton implemented a Medical Provider Network (MPN) Program in an effort to control the costs of Workers' Compensation claims. 

City employees receiving temporary (TD) disability payments will automatically be enrolled in an Integration Program for a Workers' Compensation Claim.  This program ensures employee pay is made whole through accrued leave balances until these balances are exhausted.  Employees who do not wish to participate may opt-out, but the decision is final; the employee will not be allowed to opt back in.
