History Of Workers' Compensation

In the early 20th century, workers injured on the job had to sue their employer to recover medical expenses and lost wages. Lawsuits took months and sometimes years. Juries had to decide who was at fault and how much, if anything, would be awarded. In most instances, the worker got nothing. It was costly, time consuming, and often unfair.

Today, the California workers' compensation law provides a faster, fairer way to take care of injured workers...where fault doesn't have to be proved to recover medical expenses and lost wages.  This job-injury insurance is paid for by the District and supervised by the state.  It pays your medical bills, and if you can't work due to a job-related injury or illness, it provides money or reimbursement to help offset or replace lost wages until you can return to work.

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.
