If you are hurt on the job and are unable to work there is a seven-day waiting period before benefits can be paid from workers' compensation.
If you are out of work for more than seven days, payments will come from your employer’s insurance representative. If you are out of work for more than 14 days, you will also receive compensation for the first seven days missed.
You can expect payments to be made directly to you and these workers' compensation benefits should continue until the doctor releases you to return to work.
