Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Legally, consider a letter with a cc to a lawyer demanding immediate processing.
If employer has delayed, employer would be personally liable and accountable to pay him.
If needed, can complain to the state labor board, workers comp commission, and even pursue legal action for damages.
Employer will not want to risk lawsuit or agency review and should act on this to remedy the problem.
You can leave the lawyer in the background and try to work it out hinting that you want to get past this, get benefits, and not have to turn this over to outside avenues. Company should get it and take care of it. And if does not, you reserve those options!
