Reporting of Claim by Employer Ark. Code Ann. 11-9-529, Rule 099.08

Employers must report injuries involving either more than 7 days of lost time or indemnity payments on Form 1 within 10 days. Also, a Form 1 is required for all controversions including a medical-only case. Self-insured employers file Form 1 with the AWCC; other employers send it to their insurance representatives, who, in turn, reports to the state for the employer.

The employer is required by law to give notice (Form N) to workers reporting injuries informing them of their rights and responsibilities. Ark. Code Ann. 11-9-514(c)(1)
