How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?

The employee notifies the employer of the accident in writing, as soon as possible, but within 30 days. The employee who has lost time from work files a claim with the Board on Form C­3 by mailing the form to the appropriate District Office. This must be done within two years of the accident, or within two years after the employee knew or should have known, that the injury was related to employment.
