The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Notice to Injured Workers and Employers has been revised and must be posted by all North Carolina employers covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act pursuant to §97-93 of the act. The Notice now requires an employer to complete and post information about its workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
An employer must identify:
- the name of the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier
- the insurance policy number, and
- the insurance policy valid to/from dates
Information on the updated workers’ compensation posting is used to complete a Notice of Accident to Employer and Claim (Form 18) when an employee sustains a work-related injury. An employee or a dependent has a limited time to provide notice and file a claim. The employer or its insurance company will provide and direct medical treatment for an injured worker.
The North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act requires that all businesses which employ three (3) or more employees obtain workers’ compensation insurance or qualify as self-insured employers. Employers that fail to carry workers compensation insurance face significant financial penalties and criminal charges.
