Division of Workers’ Compensation posts new workers’ compensation poster, new claim form and notice of potential eligibility effective Oct. 8, 2010

The Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) has posted clean versions of the revised workers’ compensation poster and the “DWC Claim Form 1” with the notice of potential eligibility (NOPE)  to reflect recently amended regulations on employee information that go into effect on Oct. 8, 2010. Employers and insurers are required to revise workers' compensation posters and update the employee information provided to workers.   

These new versions of the workers’ compensation poster and the DWC claim form with the NOPE become effective Oct. 8, 2010.  

Existing versions of the current documents should be used until the new versions go into effect on Friday, Oct. 8, 2010.

The regulatory amendments to the medical provider network (MPN) and employee information regulations were filed with the secretary of state on Aug. 9 and become effective on Oct. 8, 2010. These amendments are authorized by Labor Code sections 4616, 3550, and 3551.
