Division of Workers' Compensation makes changes to select EAMS forms

The Division of Workers’ Compensation has made changes to several of its forms that filers use in the Electronic Adjudication Management System (EAMS). The new forms will be posted on DWC’s EAMS Web site on August 2.

The changes include the following:

The updated forms were approved June 30 by the Office of Administrative Law.

DWC will post the new versions of the above named forms on its Web site on August 2 and encourages all filers to immediately use the new forms. However, to allow time for the transition, old versions of these three OCR forms will be accepted for a limited time at district offices.

Participants in the e-forms trial will also have updated forms and will begin using them immediately on August 2.

DWC is working with OCR forms vendors to ensure that their forms are in compliance with the changes.

The amended listing of document titles and document types formalizes changes that had been made previously but had not yet been approved by the Office of Administrative Law. For instance, when the Grover Beach district office closed and moved to San Luis Obispo, the change was reflected in the venue selections.

Here is the complete list of added and deleted titles:
