Eligibility & Coverage

Almost every employee in California is protected by workers' compensation, but there are a few exceptions. People in business for themselves and unpaid volunteers may not be covered. Maritime workers and federal employees are covered by similar laws. If you have a question about coverage please call Liz Cantu at (760) 355-6194 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Any injury or illness is covered if it is due to your job. It can be caused by one event like a fall or repeated exposures, such as repetitive motion over time. Everything from first- aid type injuries to serious accidents are covered. Coverage is automatic and immediate. There is no qualifying period and no need to earn a certain amount in wages before you're covered. Protection begins the first minute you're on the job.

The Imperial Community College District is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity and will implement a comprehensive program to put those principles into practice. It is the District's policy to ensure that all qualified applicants for employment and employees have full and equal access to employment opportunity, and are not subjected to discrimination in any program or activity of the District on the basis of ethnic group identification, race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, gender identity, physical disability, mental disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, language, accent, citizenship status, transgender status, parental status, marital status, economic status, veteran status, medical condition, ancestry, political or organizational affiliation, or on the basis of these perceived characteristics, or based on association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. The District will strive to achieve a workforce that is welcoming to men, women, persons with disabilities and individuals from all ethnic and other groups to ensure the District provides an inclusive educational and employment environment. Such an environment fosters cooperation, acceptance, democracy and free expression of ideas.
