Trenton, NJ (CompNewsNetwork) - Effective October 1, 2008, Governor Jon S. Corzine signed into law P.L. 2008 Chapter 96, which applies to every workers' compensation insurance carrier and self-insured employer. The law provides that:
Every carrier and self-insured employer shall designate a contact person who is responsible for responding to issues concerning medical and temporary disability benefits where no claim petition has been filed or where a claim petition has not been answered. The full name, telephone number, address, e-mail address, and fax number of the contact person shall be submitted to the division. Any changes in information about the contact person shall be immediately submitted to the division as they occur. After an answer is filed with the division, the attorney of record for the respondent shall act as the contact person in the case. Failure to comply with the provisions of this section shall result in a fine of $2,500 for each day of noncompliance, payable to the Second Injury Fund.
The Division has compiled the attached contact person listing from information submitted to us by workers' compensation insurance carriers and authorized self-insurers.

Carriers/self-insurers that have not yet designated a contact person as required by law must do so by downloading and completing the Insurance Carrier Contact form available on our website:
