Frequently Asked Questions

How does the workers' comp system work?

If an employee suffers a work-related injury and is required to go home, he or she is paid for the rest of the day that the injury occurred. The City of Tuscaloosa pays the employee for the following three full days after the injury date. After three days, the employee's pay is split between the City (33 percent) and workers’ comp (66 percent), so he or she still receives full pay. Once the employee returns to work, the case is closed, and his or her normal pay schedule resumes.
