Incidents that require medical treatment, but result in less than five calendar days of incapacity are considered “Medical Only” claims. They should be reported to Atlantic Charter via the Employee Incident Report. Please include any other supporting documentation. Notice to the state/Department of Industrial Accidents is not required.
A Form 101 Employer’s First Report of Injury or Fatality must be filled out for any injured employee who is incapacitated and unable to earn full or partial wages for five or more calendar days. The days do not need to be consecutive. The form must be filed with the Department of Industrial Accidents within seven calendar days, not including Sundays and holidays.
Effective January 1, 2014, please be advised that Atlantic Charter and its affiliates began filing Form 101 with the DIA on your behalf.
For your convenience, an electronic copy of the Form 101 can be accessed via our homepage. A printed, completed copy of the Form 101 must be sent to Atlantic Charter (using the methods described in the adjacent box), given to the injured worker, and kept with your file.
Please note that late reporting by the employer may result in a fine being levied by the Department of Industrial Accidents.
