Answer: An injured worker must notify his or her employer of an industrial accident as soon as practicable, but not later than 60 days from the date of the accident. For occupational diseases, the injured worker must notify his or her employer within 60 days of the first manifestation of the occupational disease which is when he or she knows that she has an occupational disease or when a qualified physician informs the injured worker that he or she has an occupational disease.
Answer: Generally speaking, an injured worker must give his or her employer written notice of an industrial accident and injury, or occupatiobal disease. Under certain circumstances, written notice may not be necessary.
Answer: Generally speaking, an injured worker is entitled to receive temporary total disability benefits or TTD benefits during his or her period of recovery from an injury when the injured worker’s treating physician requires them to remain off work while receiving treatment and recuperating from their injuries. If the treating physician has released the injured worker back to work with temporary work restrictions during his or her period of recovery, the injured worker is entitled to TTD benefits if his or her employer does not provide light-duty work within the temporary work restrictions and there is not similar work available to the injured worker.
