Workers' Compensation

As of January 2017, insurers are now required to report all claims to the California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB). These include claims for which any medical care is provided and medical costs are incurred, including those involving first aid treatment, even if the insurer did not make the payment.

The Department of Labor has just announced a change to their normal process for injury and illness data. Beginning in July of 2017, all companies with 250 or more employees will be required to report their injury and illness data directly to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The agency will then post this information online for access to anyone from the public.
