Generally, Employees are not entitled to workers’ compensation income benefits for the first seven (7) calendar days during the period of disability. However, if the employee is disabled for more than twenty-one (21) consecutive days after the injury, then the first seven (7) days will be paid.

The Employer has 21 days to either deny or accept the case under the workers’ compensation scheme after it has notice of the injury. If the Employer fails to pay the income benefits in a timely matter, it will be subject to penalties for the late payment as outlined in the statute.

Generally, a late payment penalty is 15%. However, it may be 20% if the payment is late after a court order.
