Should my boss pay my medical bills? 1 Answers as of August 18, 2010I work at a dog kennel. There was one of the biggest fights that we have had this week. I broke up the fight and one of the dogs latched on to my arm and would not let go. After he finally did I had to get stitches from very deep bites on my forearm. What is my boss liable for? Could the papers that I signed when I was hired prevent me from getting my bills paid?

If it is a work-related injury workers comp kicks in. The workers comp information is supposed to be posted at the place of employment. Call them for more information. An employer is not permitted to require an employee to waive worker's comp benefits.
