Airline workers such as Delta employees, Airtran workers, and baggage handlers for both airlines are generally covered under workers’ compensation. If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to immediate medical treatment. It is important to report the injury to your supervisor and accurately explain how the injury happened as a part of your job. There is a chance that your employer may require a drug screen. While the Employer has pre-selected a list of doctors you may treat with, you have the power to select your physician. If you are missing time from work, you may also be entitled to weekly income benefits as outlined in the workers’ compensation law.
