This poster declares that in the Commonwealth of Virginia employees of businesses operating in the State are covered under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act. It goes on to state that in case of injury by accident or notice of an occupational disease, then workers should do the following: One, immediately notify the employer. Two, promptly deliver compensation claims to the both the employer and the Virginia Workers? Compensation Commission. Three, file for a hearing with the Commission if the employer refuses compensation. Four, file a claim within two years or request an extension if the case appears that it will outlive that window.
Employers, on the other hand, must do three things: One, provide employees with prompt treatment from a physician or physicians. Two, report any incidents directly to the Workers?
