Massachusetts Compliance



Reporting of Claim by Employer Chapter 152: Section 6

Massachusetts Form 101 - Employer's First Report of Injury or Fatality must be filed within 7 calendar days, not including Sundays and legal holidays, of receipt of notice of any injury alleged to have arisen out of and in the course of employment, which totally or partially incapacitates an employee for a period of 5 or more calendar days from earning wages. This form is not an admission of liability, but must be filed even though the Employer may believe that the Employee is not injured, or that the Employee is not entitled to benefits under M.G.L. Chapter 152
