As so amended, Rule 104 reads as follows:
Employer’s Report of Injury
An employer shall immediately report to its carrier or administrator any injury or occupational disease, or allegation by an employee of an injury or occupational disease, sustained in the course of employment for which the attention of a physician is needed or actually sought. Within five days of knowledge of the injury or allegation, the employer or carrier/administrator or its successor in interest shall file with the Industrial Commission and provide a copy to the employee of a Form 19, Employer’s Report of Employee’s Injury to the Industrial Commission, if injury causes the employee to be absent from work for more than one day and the employee’s medical compensation is greater than an amount which is established periodically by the Industrial Commission in its Minutes. The employer may record the employee’s or another person’s description of the injury on the Form 19 without admitting the truth of the information.
In addition to providing the Form 19 to the employee, the employer shall also provide a blank Form 18 for use by the employee.
