Employer's First Report of Injury or Disease

Document Number: WKC-12-E

Description: This form is for the employer to report every work-related injury to its insurance company. If an employee is out more than 3 days due to a work-related injury, or there is PPD, a copy is to be sent to the Worker's Compensation Division by the employer's worker's compensation insurance carrier, not by the employer (unless the claim is a fatality). Except for fatalities, the information on this form must be sent electronically by the employer's worker's compensation carrier to the WC Division.

Comments: This form is an electronic Microsoft Word template that can be filled out on your computer (if you have Microsoft Word). We are also providing a PDF (WKC-12) which you can print and complete by hand.
