Workers' Compensation Law

How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?

You must report your injury to your employer within 7 days after an accident or when the general nature of the injury becomes apparent.

Report all on­the­job injuries to your supervisor immediately, even if you do not feel it is important to see a doctor. By reporting your injury immediately, you will alert your employer to a potential hazard.

Within 7 days of receiving notice of a work injury from an employee, your employer is required to file a C2 form with NDWC. If your employer does not, NDWC may consider that to be an admission that the alleged injury may be work related.
