Under Tennessee workers’ compensation law, any business with five or more employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance. Tennessee law outlines specific benefits to which injured workers are entitled as well as the procedures for obtaining them. For Example: Employees who have been injured on the job must notify their employers within 30 days of the injury in order to be eligible for benefits. Also, typically the employee must treat their work place injury with the employers doctor, but the employers may be liable even if the employee acted carelessly.
