Workers’ Compensation is a form of insurance that is paid for in advance by the Prince George's County Public School (PGCPS) System. It entitles employees to full medical coverage and a portion of their salary for job-related injuries and illnesses. Employees of the Prince George’s County Public School System are eligible for Disability Leave as set forth in the negotiated agreements between the Board of Education and the various employee organizations (see your applicable union contract). Notices of claim should be directed to Sedgwick Claims Management.
If a death occurs, death benefits and burial expense will be paid up to specified amount.
It is the responsibility of the employee to inform their manager of the injury and call 1-855-364-9861 immediately following the incident and seek medical attention as needed.
To report a Workers’ Compensation Claim, you may do so by calling the Injured Employee Hotline via Sedgwick at 1-855-364-9861. Sedgwick is Prince George’s County Public School’s Third-Party Administrator for Workers' Compensation.
