The State Risk Manager is responsible for the management of workers' compensation claims made by employees of the State of Nebraska. Workers' compensation for state employees is subject to the same rules and procedures as workers' compensation for employees of private companies.
Workers' compensation is designed to provide benefits to workers who suffer injury or disease in the course of and as a result of their employment. An injured worker may receive indemnity benefits and/or medical benefits. In some situations, workers will be eligible for vocational rehabilitation.
