Reporting of Claim by Employer 65-05-01.4.

An employer is required to file a First Report of Injury form with Workforce Safety & Insurance (WSI) within 7 days of receiving notice of an injury from a worker.

Early claim reporting incentive

WSI assesses the employer up to $350 per claim. WSI will waive the assessment if the injury or incident is filed with WSI by midnight (Central Time) of the business day following the date of injury or incident. (NOTE: This incentive applies to all injuries or incidents that occurred on or after July 1, 2005.) If a worker reports an incident but does not seek immediate medical attention, the employer should file an "Incident Report" online at in order to qualify.
