Workers’ Compensation Frequently Asked Questions
Is There a Time Limit for Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?You have one year from the date of injury to file a workers’ compensation claim in California. This is called a “statute of limitations.”There are other workers’ comp deadlines as well. You might wonder how to report a workplace injury. You must notify your employer of your injury within 30 days to be eligible for workmans’ comp benefits. Your employer is required to notify their insurance company of your injury within 10 days. If any of these time limits are not met, you may have difficulty getting the compensation you deserve.
How Much of My Salary Will Workers’ Compensation Pay Me?Workers’ comp benefits will not pay 100% of your salary or hourly wage. They will reimburse you for lost wages up to two-thirds of your gross weekly earnings. However, there is also a cap on how much you can receive weekly. That limit changes annually.
How Long Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation?The maximum amount of time you can get workers’ compensation in California is 104 weeks (two years) within a five-year period. The period begins on the date of your injury. You do not have to use the entire 104 weeks consecutively. However, certain catastrophic or serious injuries may qualify for up to 240 weeks of financial benefits. Permanently disabling benefits may result in benefits for life.
Can I Get Fired for Reporting a Workplace Injury?A California employer may not fire you for reporting an injury or filing a workers’ compensation claim. This is called retaliation, and it is illegal.
