Human Resources - Risk Management Division
Risk Management provides services to employees as well as the general public. It administers the City's self-insured workers' compensation and third party liability claims funds; provides insurance requirements for entities doing business with the City as well as verifying the insurance is in compliance with the required insurance and remains in force for the duration of the contract; identifies processes, procedures, operations and workplace hazards that expose the City to financial loss; and manages its purchased insurance program. Risk Management assists departments in minimizing, planning for, and financing the negative consequences of their operations.

The Recovery unit recovers money that is owed to the City arising from the negligence of a third party (Workers' Compensation and Property Damage).
