SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)

Workers' compensation; filing of claim. Provides that if an employer has received notice of an accident resulting in compensable injury to an employee and the employer has paid compensation or wages to such employee during incapacity for work resulting from such injury or the employer has failed to file the report of said accident with the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission or otherwise has under a workers' compensation plan or insurance policy furnished or caused to be furnished medical service to such employee, the statute of limitations applicable to the filing of a claim shall be tolled until the last day for which such payment of compensation or wages or furnishment of medical services is provided and that occurs more than six months after the date of accident. The measure provides that no such payment of wages or workers' compensation benefits or furnishment of medical service occurring after the expiration of the statute of limitations applies to this provision. The measure also provides that (i) if the employer has failed to file a first report, the statute of limitations shall be tolled during the duration thereof until the employer filed the first report of accident and (ii) if more than one of the above tolling provisions applies, whichever of those causes the longer period of tolling shall apply.
