The Indiana Workers’ Compensation Board has announced that it will begin imposing fines for late reporting of workers’ compensation claims for injuries filed on or after October 1, 2017.

Section I.C.22-3-4-13, requires the First Report of Injury to be filed with the Workers’ Compensation Board within 14 days of the date the Employer has knowledge of the injury.

If the First Report of Injury is not filed timely, the Board my impose a $50.00 fine for the first offense, a second offense $150.00, and for the third offense up to $300.00 -I.C.22-3-4-15.

The report of injury shall contain the name, nature, and location of the business of the employer, the name, age, sex, wages and occupation of the injured employee, the date and hour of the accident causing the alleged injury, the nature and cause of the injury, and such other information as required by the board.

All the reasons for which we give thanks

We decided this year to make a quick video to illustrate our thankfulness and to encourage you and yours to reflect upon your own gratitude. We hope you enjoy the video and we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!  Click here to see our “Why we are Thankful” video.

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.”         -Cicero

As Thanksgiving approaches, I am reminded that – regardless of our struggles- we have so much to be thankful for, everyday. We are so blessed to live in the country that we do with the freedoms that we posses and the safety that we enjoy. I find it helpful to reflect on that when I feel down- no matter how badly things may be going there is still so much to be grateful for- if we take the time to look around, we’re sure to see the silver lining shining through the clouds. I hope that if we can try to remember those silver linings in times of hardship, we can start to see our glass as half full and perhaps this change in perception can help to improve our reality as well. Never underestimate the power of positivity! As Oprah rightly pointed out, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”.

Until next time- may every sunrise bring you renewed purpose and ever increasing joy.
