Worker's Compensation
The County of Yuba’s Workers’ Compensation program is self-insured and administered through York Insurance Services. Our mission is to provide state mandated benefits to all County employees and other qualified recipients in a timely, professional and cost effective manner.

Disability Management
The County of Yuba’s Disability Management goal is to enhance the health of County employees so they can provide quality services to County residents. We provide a variety of medical and psychological services to all County departments, including: pre-employment medical screening, Peace Officer medical and psychological evaluation, Fitness for Duty, and Return to Work evaluations. In addition, Human Resources implements and has oversight for the County's ADA/FEHA Compliance and policies, ensures that appropriate accommodations are made for employees according to statutes, and designates and monitors various types of leaves.

General Liability and Loss Prevention
Human Resources is tasked with mitigating risks and exposures to protect County assets, and procuring appropriate types and levels of insurance.

Human Resources provides guidance, training and technical support to County Departments on maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for our employees as well as visitors to County facilities. The key programs of the Loss Prevention Unit are: Injury and Illness Prevention, Ergonomics, drug and alcohol testing, and the DMV Pull Notice Program. Human Resources controls claim costs by promoting worker health and safety through training, compliance with CalOSHA regulations and pre-emptive programs.

Background and Internal Investigations
Human Resources conducts pre-employment background investigations for applicants prior to appointment to ensure timely identification of any history, criminal or otherwise, which could adversely affect job performance or public safety. In addition, Human Resources is responsible for investigating violations of Discrimination or Harassment.

Unemployment Insurance
The County of Yuba's Unemployment Insurance Program is self-insured. Human Resources evaluates claims filed by former employees for unemployment insurance benefits to comply with the State of California Employment Development Department’s eligibility criteria and maintain cost effectiveness for the County.
