WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROCESS REVISIONS: The revised instructions and forms are now available on the Department of Risk Management and Workers' Compensation webpage. Any forms which your department may have pre-printed should be destroyed and the new forms should be used beginning January 1, 2015 as they contain new information related to the process.

New Clinic: The Workers' Compensation Act allows employers to direct medical care for the first 28 days after inception of medical treatment due to a work-related injury/illness. Currently, employees are directed to seek treatment at either of the two Midwest Health Center locations in Romulus and Dearborn. As of January 1, 2015, an additional occupational health clinic has been included as a designated clinic where employees may seek medical treatment. Washtenaw Urgent Care in Ann Arbor, which is located at the SE corner of Washtenaw and S. Huron Parkway, in the Arlington Square Building. Access to the building is available off Washtenaw via several "service drive" entrances or off S. Huron Parkway. Except in the case of a life-threatening emergency, failure to seek medical treatment at a designated clinic may delay or deny an employee's medical claim.

Authorization for Treatment Form: Another addition to the injury report is the "Authorization for Treatment" form which must be completed and signed by a Supervisor, for the employee to provide to the clinic when seeking treatment  A supervisor's signature on this form indicates that they are aware of the injury, and that the employee will be seeking medical treatment.  Failure to provide this form to the employee may delay treatment at the clinic. For additional information, please visit the following websites:

EMU Department of Risk Management and Workers' Compensation webpage or visit the 
Michigan Workers' Compensation Board FAQ webpage. Please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Risk Management and Workers' Compensation at 487-1357, or via email to tpiercec@emich.edu (workers' compensation) or dsalk@emich.edu (Director of Risk Management) if you have any questions.


GOOGLE DRIVE REPLACING U: DRIVE: In March 2015, Google Drive will formally replace EMU-provided U: drives. Google Drive provides unlimited storage space to EMU faculty and staff, and allows files to be shared with others within and outside of the university. Google Drive also allows for easy file access from any computing platform (desktop, tablet or mobile).

In addition to unlimited file storage space, Google Drive has mobile apps so you can access your files from your smartphone or tablet, too!  There is also a tool that will allow you to sync all of the contents of your Google Drive to a desktop folder on your Windows or Mac computer. Full details on how to access your EMU-provided Google Drive account, where to get the mobile apps, and how to set up syncing are available at: http://www.emich.edu/it/services/googleapps/drive.php.

The decision to decommission the use of EMU-provided U: drives was made because the storage technology in use is outdated and the available storage capacity no longer meets the needs of faculty and staff. (Please note that the departmental shared drives, known as the W: drive or the Z: drive, will remain available and are not affected by this change.)

Anyone with files stored on their U: drive that they wish to keep must move those files to Google Drive (or another storage location) before March 1, 2015. Any files remaining on the U: drive after that date will be permanently deleted. Questions or concerns about this change may be directed to Rocky Jenkins 487-3145 or rjenkins@emich.edu.


EMU CAMPUS DIRECTORY FOR STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF: The directory is touch compatible and features a responsive design for optimized display and functionality on desktop, tablet or mobile devices. Users can search for students, faculty or staff via a single search box with results being cleanly displayed in expandable/collapsible rows. The new campus directory can be accessed directly at www.emich.edu/directory or by using the single search box at the top of any EMU webpage. For more details, please read the press release about the new EMU Campus Directory. Please contact Darcy Gifford at 487-5375 or dgiffor2@emich.edu if you have any questions.
