Reporting of Claim by Employer LE 9-707

If an accident occurs to an employee that results in disability for a period of more than 3 days, it is the responsibility of the employer to report this accident to the Workers' Compensation Commission on a "First Report of Injury" form within 10 days after notice of such accident, whether oral or written.

The employer/insurer must complete the online form and electronically submit it to the Workers' Compensation Commission by selecting the Submit button on the electronic form. You may print/save the completed form after submission. An email address is required to submit the form. A receipt of form or notice of failure will be sent to the email address entered on the form.
