What employers should do if there's a dispute

Sometimes you may disagree with your worker or the insurer about a workers compensation claim. If this happens there are ways to resolve the dispute.

Talk with your insurer first

If you have any issues about your workers claim you should contact your insurer first. They are familiar with your worker’s circumstances and trained to take action and/or escalate your concerns.

Call us
