Any ex-employee can file a workers’ comp claim within one year of injury. To avoid these post-employment claims, management is encouraged to hold monthly meetings to ask employees if they have had any injuries and then ask employees to sign a document during the meetings to confirm.
An exit interview can reduce claims by offering the employee a chance to report any incident during their employment including an injury. By signing the form, the employee says that they had no injury when they left the job. So, post-employment claims and their financial impact should be reduced.back
