On the Job Injury(OJI)

City of Memphis – On the Job Injury

City of Memphis On the Job injury program provides quality medical treatment-at no cost- to City of Memphis employees who are injured on the job. City of Memphis on the job injury program works with Sedgwick to assist employees, process claims, and coordinate medical care while ensuring the employees successful return to work. Full and rapid recovery is the goal for any City of Memphis employee who is injured on the job. City of Memphis is not workers’ compensation and therefore is not subject to workers’ compensation regulatory requirements.

No payment shall be made when personal injuries were due to the employee’s willful misconduct, intentional self-inflicted injury, intoxication, or willful failure/refusal to use safety equipment/appliance or perform a duty required by law.

Employees may seek treatment at the nearest emergency medical facility for urgent and life-threatening conditions.

If You are Injured on the Job

For Injury or Exposure:

*Employee must report to supervisor during same shift or no later than 24 hours from incident

For Occupational Disease/Illness:

*Employee must report to supervisor within 30 days from diagnosis

  1. Report your injury to your supervisor immediately. If your injury is urgent or life-threatening, please seek treatment immediately from the nearest hospital.
  2. Your supervisor will complete the necessary injury forms and submit them to Sedgwick. Complete the report by phone or link submission.
  3. When discharged from the emergency facility, the employee must contact the Manager/OSHA Coordinator and Sedgwick to discuss follow-up treatment and return to work instructions.

What should an “employer” do when an employee reports an injury?

Upon the report of a workplace injury, an employer should provide the employee, in writing, a choice of physicians on An Agreement Between Employer/Employee Choice of Physician (Form C-42)

The form must be completed, provided to the employee to allow him/her to designate the authorized treating physician, signed by the employee with a copy given to the employee, and the original kept on file with the employer. The physicians listed should be located in or near the employee’s community of residence. 

The employee has the privilege of choosing a physician from the list. The one selected becomes the “authorized treating physician.” The employee is then required to accept treatment from the treating physician and should not seek treatment from any other medical provider unless the treating physician makes a referral.

Employers must also immediately submit all known or reported injuries or illnesses to their insurance carriers unless the employer is qualified and certified as a self-insured employer. Self-insured employers must either report the claim to their Third-Party Administrator (TPA) or internal claims handling program. Reportable workplace injuries or illnesses are those that cause:

An employee to receive medical treatment outside of the employer’s premises; their absence from work, or their retention of a permanent impairment; or, their Death.”
