Section 229 Posting of notice and providing of notice of rights

Workers' Compensation (WKC)

1. Each covered employer shall post and maintain in a conspicuous place or places in and about the employer's place or places of business typewritten or printed notices in form prescribed by the chair, stating that the employer has provided for the payment of disability and family leave benefits as required by this article. The chair may require any covered employer to furnish a written statement at any time showing the carrier insuring the payment of benefits under this article or the manner in which such employer has complied with section two hundred eleven of this article or any other provision of this article. Failure for a period of ten days to furnish such written statement shall constitute presumptive evidence that such employer has neglected or failed in respect of any of the matters so required.

  2. Whenever an employee of a covered employer who is eligible for benefits under section two hundred four of this article shall be absent from work due to a disability or to provide family leave as defined in subdivision nine and subdivision fifteen respectively, of section two hundred one of this article for more than seven consecutive days, the employer shall provide the employee with a written statement of the employee's rights under this article in a form prescribed by the chair. The statement shall be provided to the employee within five business days after the employee's seventh consecutive day of absence due to disability or family leave or within five business days after the employer has received notice that the employee's absence is due to disability or family leave, whichever is later.
