Provide the employee claim form: You are required to provide the employee with an Employee's Claim for Workers' Compensation Benefits form within one working day of learning of an injury. The employee should return the completed form to you. When you receive the employee's claim form make sure you sign and date it. You must then immediately forward the original to your carrier. The first indemnity payment must be made within 14 days of your knowledge of a disabling injury. Failure to provide timely benefits may result in a penalty. The penalty may be charged back to you, the employer, if it is determined that you did not file the claim form with your carrier on time.

Note: Be aware that signing the employer's report and the employee's benefits does not constitute acceptance of a claim.
