WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIMS

Notice and Claim Requirements

A worker is required to give notice of an injury within ninety days after the injury. The employer must be provided with information sufficient to make them aware that an employee has been injured or has developed an occupational disease. Any claim for benefits must be made by the employee within two years of the date of injury or development of occupational disease. If the worker does not satisfy the notice and claim requirements the worker is not entitled to compensation benefits. Failure to give notice is not always a defense the employer may use unless the employer can establish that somehow it was harmed by the lack of notice. Neither the Notice nor the Claim has to be in writing.
