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

You should tell your employer as soon as possible that you have been injured. In any case you must tell your employer within 30 days of your injury, or when you learn that your injury is work related. If you wait more than 30 days after the injury, you may lose the right to claim workers` compensation benefits.
