Q: Is an employer required to notify his insurer when his employee sustains a work injury? View : 63
A:

• Other than reporting to the Commissioner for Labour, an employer should also notify the insurer as soon as possible, within the stipulated period and in the specified format (in writing or by specified form) required by the insurer, when his employee sustains a work injury;
• The employer should also keep a record of the periodical payments (i.e. payments for sick leaves for work injury) paid to the injured employee, the original copies of the Certificate of Compensation Assessment (Form 5) and the Certificate of Assessment (Form 7) issued by the Labour Department, medical certificates and receipts in respect of medical expenses properly; and submit the relevant documents to the insurer within the stipulated period and in the specified format required by the insurer for indemnifying the amount of compensation already paid to the injured employee; and
• On receiving any legal documents, including an order or a summons issued by the court, the employer should notify his insurer the soonest possible or seek legal advice.
