What should an employer do upon notice of an employee’s injury?

The employer should notify its insurance carrier or, if it is self insured, its claims administrator, as soon as it has knowledge of an injury. Medical treatment, if needed, should be authorized immediately. An Employer’s First Report of Injury, Form LS-202, must be filed with the OWCP district office having jurisdiction within 10 days of the injury if it causes loss of one or more work shifts. The Form LS-202 may be filed electronically. For information and instructions, go here. Additional forms and notices, as well as medical reports, should be filed with the OWCP as regulations require.
