What happens after an employee is hurt at work? It’s important to report it to your workers’ compensation insurer right away. It helps the injured employee get the best care possible and receive any benefits that are due.
One factor that affects your workers’ compensation premium is your loss history. Workers’ compensation claims can cause future premiums to increase. Bring employees back to work as soon as they are medically able to minimize the impact of claims on your premium.
Every state’s law is different, but typically employers are required to provide safe routes for employees from their vehicles into work. If an employee is hurt by falling in the designated parking lot going in or out from work, it could be considered a work injury.
