CHAPTER 28-34
Workers' Compensation – Occupational Diseases

SECTION 28-34-10


§ 28-34-10 Information as to previous employers.

The employee, or his or her dependents, if so requested, shall furnish the last employer or the director or the workers' compensation court with any information as to the names and addresses of all his or her other employers during the twenty-four (24) months that he or she or they possess. If that information is not furnished, or is not sufficient to enable the last employer to take proceedings against a prior employer under § 28-34-8, unless it is established that the occupational disease actually was contracted while the employee was in his or her employment, the last employer shall not be liable to pay compensation, or, if that information is not furnished or is not sufficient to enable the last employer to take proceedings against the other employers under § 28-34-8, the last employer shall be liable only for that part of the total compensation as under the particular circumstances the workers' compensation court deem just; but a false statement in the information furnished shall not impair the employer's rights unless the last employer is prejudiced by it.
