In Case of Employee Injury

In Case of Employee Injury

When an employee sustains an injury on the job that requires medical attention, inform the district PTA and call the California State PTA office at 916.440.1985 to secure an Employer’s Report of Occupational Injury or Illness.

The completed report must be returned within 24 hours for processing and referral to the insurance carrier. By law, injuries requiring medical attention must be reported within five working days.

The employee also must be given an Employee’s Claim for Workers’ Compensation Benefits to complete within one working day of the employer’s knowledge of the injury. If the injury does not require medical attention, complete the form and keep it on file, should the employee seek medical attention at a later date.
