|In cases of dispute between an injured worker and the employer and/or insurance carrier over entitlement to benefits, the worker may file either a formal Claim Petition or an Application for an Informal Hearing with the Division of Workers' Compensation.
Disputed issues may include whether the injury/illness was considered work-related, the type and extent of medical treatment, and/or the payment of temporary disability benefits. More Info
|The law requires that all New Jersey employers, not covered by Federal programs, have workers’ compensation coverage or be approved for self-insurance.
If you're aware of an uninsured employer, you may provide this information to the Office of Special Compensation Funds by e-mail, by calling (609) 292-0165 or by completing a "Report of Non-Compliance form" .
You don't have to identify yourself but you should provide the name and address of the employer and, if possible, the names of the principle operators of the business.
|It is against the law for an employer to discharge or discriminate against an employee because the employee claimed or attempted to claim workers' compensation benefits or because the employee testified or is about to testify in a workers' compensation matter. More Info
