DWC Headquarters is Moving

The Department of Industrial Relations is moving all of its headquarters operations from the soon-to-be-demolished State Office Building at 455 Golden Gate Avenue in the San Francisco Civic Center to 45 Fremont Street, one block from Market Street in the financial district.

The Division of Workers' Compensation will move on October 7-8. Effective Monday morning, October 9, 1995, DWC will be located on the 31st floor of the new building and have a new phone number -- (415) 975-0700. For State agencies on the Calnet system, the number will be -- 8-539-0700.

The mailing address will remain the same. All mail should continue to be sent to:

Division of Workers' Compensation
P.O. Box 420603
San Francisco, CA 94142

The Managed Care Unit and the Research and Evaluation Unit, both currently located at 30 Van Ness Avenue, will also move to the new location, effective the same date.

The street address, which may be used for registered or certified mail and packages delivered by express mail, UPS, Federal Express, etc., will be:

Division of Workers' Compensation
45 Fremont St., Suite 3160
San Francisco, CA 94105

Construction is expected to begin next year on a new high rise State Office Building to replace the current structure at 455 Golden Gate Ave.

A move of this type inevitably involves some disruption in service or delays in answering mail or phone messages while it occurs. We will try to keep these to a minimum and apologize in advance for any inconvenience it may cause.
