Workers Compensation FAQs

The Kansas Department of Labor Workers Compensation Division is responsible for the administration of the Kansas Workers Compensation laws and rules. The division focuses on ensuring employees injured at work, employers, health care providers and insurance carriers receive timely, impartial and fair claim resolution.

null How do I know when a First Report of Injury (FROI) and Subsequent Report of Injury (SROI) need to be filed, and in what order to file them?

There are Event tables (FROI, SROI, Periodic) within our Release 3.1 EDI Tables that show which business events trigger each First Report of Injury (FROI) and Subsequent Report of Injury (SROI) to be filed with the Kansas Division of Workers Compensation. The tables show the report triggers for each maintenance type code and when the report is due.

The sequence for filing the reports can also be found within the Kansas R3.1 Edit Matrix in the table named "KS Sequence Table." This table shows whether a report (FROI or SROI) will be accepted or rejected based on the previous report that was filed.
