Late Workers' Compensation Checks?
Posted By Greg Harbison, Esquire
If you are injured in Virginia and receiving workers' compensation checks from an insurance carrier. By law, you are supposed to be issued and mailed within 2 weeks of when they are due. If they are over 14 days late, you are entitled to request a 20% penalty. Always keep the envelope the late check was mailed in. That envelope may be the best evidence for you.
