§ 229. Posting of notice and providing of notice of rights. 1. Each covered employer shall post and maintain in a conspicuous place or places in and about the employer's place or places of business typewritten or printed notices in form prescribed by the chairman, stating that the employer has provided for the payment of disability benefits as required by this article. The chairman may require any covered employer to furnish a written statement at any time showing the carrier insuring the payment of benefits under this article or the manner in which such employer has complied with section two hundred eleven or any other provision of this article. Failure for a period of ten days to furnish such written statement shall constitute presumptive evidence that such employer has neglected or failed in respect of any of the matters so required. 2. Whenever an employee of a covered employer who is eligible for benefits under section two hundred four of this article shall be absent from work due to a disability as defined in subdivision nine of section two hundred one of this article for more than seven consecutive days, the employer shall provide the employee with a written statement of the employee's rights under this article in a form prescribed by the chairman. The statement shall be provided to the employee within five business days after the employee's seventh consecutive day of absence due to disability or within five business days after the employer knows or should know that the employee's absence is due to disability, whichever is later.
