Virtually all Idaho employers are required to provide workman's compensation for job-related injuries and diseases. The Idaho Industrial Commission is the state agency that regulates workman's comp. This includes workers and companies that issue workman's comp policies.
Contact the Idaho Industrial Commission (IIC). In Idaho, workman's comp records are available via mail or fax; however, you need the person's full name and Social Security number. The IIC's main number is (208) 334-6000 or you can send your request to: Idaho Industrial Commission; Boise, Idaho 83720-0041.
Identify yourself when making the request for a copy of the workman's comp records for the person of interest. If you are making the request by mail, you want to provide a reason why you are asking the IIC for this information. You can also fax your request to the IIC.
Specify the number of years for which you want workman's comp claim information. It could be possible the person was collecting workman's comp at one time but is no longer covered.
Tips & Warnings
- Getting workman's comp records from the IIC is not possible if you do not know the person's Social Security number. You may want to contact or visit the person's employer. You can ask employees whether they know if the person is on workman's comp disability. Alternatively, you can ask to speak to a person in the human resources department. You can also visit the IIC's website to obtain the name of the company's workman's comp insurer. On the right side of the IIC website, click on the link "Verifying an employer's coverage." The insurance company contact information will appear. Contact the insurer to inquire if the person has a workman's comp claim.
