Workers’ Compensation

Workers' Comp scenarios

The Workers’ Compensation Program is happy to announce that The Life of a Workers’ Compensation Claim class has been successfully transitioned to a series of self-paced online modules. While this training is intended for newer return-to-work coordinators and other workers’ compensation staff, more experienced personnel are welcome to take this as a refresher course.

The training course is available via CalLearns, has no registration fee, and helps satisfy part of the training requirements outlined in the master agreement.

WHAT WE DO

The CalHR Benefits Division is responsible for the design, acquisition, and oversight of the statewide employee benefit programs. This includes dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, wellness, employee recognition, retirement, life, long-term disability and legal insurance, and other statewide benefit programs. Through effective stakeholder collaboration and partnerships, the Division ensures the state employees, retirees and their dependents have access to competitive, quality and affordable benefits. Successful delivery of these responsibilities enables the state, as an employer, to offer optimal benefits packages for recruiting and contributes to maintaining a top-performing workforce.

CalHR Mission and Vision

The California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) is responsible for all issues related to employee salaries and benefits, job classifications, civil rights, training, exams, recruitment and retention. For most employees, many of these matters are determined through the collective bargaining process managed by CalHR.

Our Vision: To be the premier leader and trusted partner in innovative human resources management.

Our Mission: To provide exceptional human resources leadership and services with integrity, respect and accountability to state departments and all current and prospective employees.
