In the State of Nevada the employer has 24 hours to fax/submit all accident/incident information to the workmens Comp office. By 24 hours I mean after the hospital has returned the required paperwork including drug test results to the employer, and/or any investigation into the events leading to the mishap has been completed. If the investigation take 2 day or a week they then have 24 hours to submit. If medical treatment was required the medical facility will submit a claim for payment against the insurer/state. REMEMBER: The employer does not approve or disapprove any workmens comp claims, the insurer or state approves or disapproves any compinsation provided to the injured party.

Workers compensation insurance should cover your lost time. You may be able to file a grievance with the insurance company to this effect, or you should consult a workers compensation attorney for direction.

Workman's Compensation is administered by the individual States and the rules that apply vary from State to State. Federal employees fall under The Federal Workman's Compensation. In my State, Workman's Compensation is available only if the condition preventing you from working is a work related illness or injury. You can get information at: www.workerscompensation.com, they have information for Federal and each individual State. You can also call your local Workman's Compensation Board. Reasons Why You Can't Get Workman's Compensation 1. If you are taking medication so that you are unable to do your job safely and receive workman's compensation. 2. If you have a condition that require you to take medication that makes you unable to work safely. If you apply for unemployment due to disability, then yes you can receive workman's compensation.

Due to layoff, termination due to causes not your own, and in certain cases where you have to quit because of illness or family crisis.....

To the best of my knowledge, there is no minimum time you have to be absent before you can collect worker's compensation payments, provided you are missing work due to an injury or illness related to working your position.

In the US, yes, of course they are.Emotional distress. Emotional distress itself is not a physical injury or physical sickness, but damages you receive for emotional distress due to a physical injury or sickness are treated as received for the physical injury or sickness. Do not include them in your income. If the emotional distress is due to a personal injury that is not due to a physical injury or sickness (for example, unlawful discrimination or injury to reputation), you must include the damages in your income, except for any damages you receive for medical care due to that emotional distress. Emotional distress includes physical symptoms that result from emotional distress, such as headaches, insomnia, and stomach disorders.

Work injuries are evaluated under the Worker's Compensation system. If the injuries are proven, the employer pays a percentage of disability. Therefore, it is not the usual wage, but is a percentage.

Due to workers compensation laws, an employer must either allow their employee time off work with no negative consequences, or find another job that the worker is capable of performing during recovery. While each state has specific laws regarding workers compensation, if an employee is injured on the job, they are protected from write-ups and termination.

Backache and back injuries are the most common reason for missing work, these problems can occur due to work but can also happen outside the workplace. If your injury occurs at work you maybe entitled to compensation, the closing amount would be dependent on the type of injury, situation in which the injury occurred and potential lost earnings.

Do you mean release your PHI to the insurance claims company?? Your healthcare provider generates your PHI, so they already have it. Yes, you should release the info. In order to receive workmen's compensation, you need to have the records to prove that your claim that your medical condition is due to an accident/injury at work.

If you are hurt at work in California, the process starts by reporting the injury to your employer and asking for medical treatment if needed. They should give you a claim form which they are supposed to forward to their workers compensation carrier. Bad answer. We do not rely on employers to start the WC process. When a worker goes to a doctor for treatment of what he/she says is a work injury, the DOCTOR files it as workers comp, and the WC agency notifies the employer. WC benefits are due even if the employer never knew about the injury.

Workers' compensation insurance pays for any medical treatment required for an injury suffered in the course of employment. It also provides replacement wages if an employee is off work due to that injury. The amount of that payment varies according to individual state statutes.

Most settlements are final, therefore no further payments of any kind will be due. It would depend on the wording of your settlement.

Yes, Worker's Compensation refers to a worker who is receiving benefits because he is not working due to health (job related injury or illness), whereas unemployment compensation has to do with compensating a worker for his loss of a job through no fault of his own (in most cases).
