New Hampshire: Remember To File FROI Correctly And Timely

| Feb 1, 2022

NEW HAMPSHIRE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR:

MAKE SURE TO FILE A FIRST REPORT OF INJURY CORRECTLY AND TIMELY TO AVOID A PENALTY!

All reports of workplace injury (regardless of whether they are medical only or lost time) in New Hampshire must be reported to the New Hampshire Department of Labor by the employer or insurer as soon as possible, but no later than five (5) days under RSA 281-A:53.

A fine or penalty can be assessed for up to $2500 for violation of this statute. Please refer to RSA 281-A:53 “Responsibility of Employer to Provide Vital Information”

The New Hampshire Department of Labor is extremely aggressive in pursuing these alleged violations.

HOW TO AVOID A PENALTY?

Timely obtain information: Insurers and employers must act quickly to obtain all correct information concerning the facts and circumstances of the industrial accident and injury.

Fill in the FROI correctly: Insurers and employers must be certain that all information (especially concerning the employee and the employer) is correct when reporting an injury. The First Report of Injury will not be acknowledged or considered by the New Hampshire Department of Labor if any information is missing (such as the employee’s date of birth, etc.).

File the FROI timely: The First Report of Injury must be reported as soon as possible, but no later than five (5) days under RSA 281-A:53.
