Insurance Claim

Recommended Posts

We are a small Labour Hire Agency and we are in the middle of making our first claim for one of our employees who was injured during working hours.

 

He received 3rd degree burns to his hand and thankfully he is recovering well.

 

He is due to come back to work in a few weeks and our insurance company is asking for his payroll summary.  

 

Can I give this information to our insurance company with out our employees permission or can they ask for his payroll information?  

 

I would appreciate any advise on this matter.

Yes. The WC laws of your state and your contract with your insurance company allow for it.

 

can they ask for his payroll information?  

 

 

Yes. They have an absolute right to that information under law and contract.

 

As a business owner you ought to become familiar with the WC laws of your state and your WC policy.

 

Just so you know, a workers weekly benefits are a percentage of his pay. That's why the insurance company is entitled to his payroll information.
