Division of Workers’ Compensation to host electronic filing expo in San Francisco on Oct. 9
The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), in conjunction with its vendor partners, will host an electronic filing expo in San Francisco on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The event is free and anyone interested in e-filing or JET File is encouraged to attend.
The expo was originally scheduled a week earlier on Oct. 2, but has been moved to Oct. 9.
Electronic filing is the fastest way to get documents into EAMS, DWC’s electronic case management system for the workers’ compensation courts. There are two ways to file electronically: e-forms and JET File. JET File is best suited to filers of the six most used court forms, while e-forms are available for all forms. The Oct. 9 expo will provide information about, and demonstrations of both filing methods.
Filers looking for faster, easier and more cost-effective alternatives to paper forms are encouraged to attend this electronic filing expo:

No registration is necessary. Filers can drop in any time between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The program will repeat through the day. There will be an hour lunch break from noon until 1 p.m.
“The expo gives filers a chance to explore options in electronic filing and take a closer look of JET File,” said Acting Associate Chief Judge Mark Fudem. “This will also be an opportunity for filers to get answers to their questions and to sign up to e-file.”
