Workers' Compensation

There is no law in South Dakota requiring any employer to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, it is highly recommended. An uninsured employer may be sued in civil court by an injured worker.

The South Dakota Workers’ Compensation program for those employers who choose to have coverage is an insurance program that pays medical and disability benefits for work-related injuries and diseases.

First Report of Injury

You may file your First Report of Injury (Form 101), your Monthly Payment Reports (Form 107) and a Request for Extension of Time online using the First Report of Injury Management System.
