May my employer pay me wage-loss benefits without accepting responsibility for my claim?

If your employer issues a Notice of Compensation Payable in connection with your work injury, it formally accepts responsibility for your claim and must continue paying wage-loss benefits unless certain conditions are met. An employer may, however, pay wage-loss benefits to you for up to 90 days without formally accepting responsibility for the claim. To do so, the employer must file a Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable. The employer has the right to stop making payment of wage-loss benefits at any time following the issuance of a Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable by issuing a Notice Stopping Compensation Benefits. However, if benefits are paid for a period longer than 90 days, the employer automatically accepts responsibility for your claim.
