As an employer in the State of Rhode Island you are obligated to provide every worker workers' compensation insurance and are required to report any and all injuries to your workers' compensation carrier as mandated by the Workers' Compensation Law.
By law, the report shall be made within 10 days after the injury, or if the incapacity is due to an occupational disease then within 10 days after the incapacity is known to the employer.
In the case of an immediate fatality, the report shall be made within 48 hours after it occurs or becomes known to the employer. Employers that fail to report as required by law are subject to a penalty of $250.00 for each refusal.
