Q I've been injured on the job. What should my employer do?
A. Your employer should make sure you receive immediate medical attention to treat the injury. The employer must report the injury to the insurance company, or the administrator if self-insured, within five days of the date of the injury or within five days of the date on which the injury was reported to the employer if that is later. The insurance company or administrator then reports the injury to the Division of Workers' Compensation.
If your employer denies that the injury is work-related, you should determine through the employer if the injury has been reported. Then contact the Division's Dispute Management Unit at (573) 526-4951.
