Workers' Compensation

The State Office of Risk Management (SORM) serves as the state's insurance carrier for this benefit. The program generally provides coverage to persons in the service of the State of Texas whether by hire, election, appointment or as employee of Community Supervision and Corrections Department.

The Worker's Compensation Act covers on-the-job injuries that occur in the course and scope of employment and that result in damage or harm to the body. It also covers occupational diseases directly caused by exposure in the workplace.

The State Employees' Workers' Compensation Program pays for medical treatment and lost wages for state workers who are injured or become ill as a result of their work. Coverage is provided at no cost and employees are not required to sign-up for this coverage.
