Employers must give injured workers a Claimant Information Packet (available in several languages under Workers' Comp Claim Forms - Employer) when filing claims. The packet includes:
- the claimant’s rights and responsibilities
- pharmacy benefits information, and
- Form C-3.1 (Notice of Right to Select a Workers' Compensation Board Authorized Health Care Provider) that must be signed and returned to the employer
Retain a record of receipt of the original, signed C-3.1, or document all attempts to obtain the signed form if the injured worker fails to return it. In any event, all injured employees must receive timely, appropriate treatment for a work-related injury or illness.
