How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?
Your employer must complete the First Report of Injury form within10 days from its knowledge of a workers` compensation claim to report it to the employer`s insurance company.
Effective Aug. 1, 2000, requires employers to give their employees the Minnesota Workers` Compensation System Employee Information Sheet at the time the employees are given a copy of their First Report of Injury. The First Report of Injury is a form that is filed when a workplace accident occurs.
The longer you wait to report a work related injury the higher the risk of losing compensation benefits.
