Division of Workers’ Compensation Posts Updated Time of Hire Pamphlet

The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted an updated time of hire pamphlet on its website. The pamphlet now has the new predesignation of personal physician and notice of personal chiropractor or acupuncturist forms that are effective on July 1, 2014.

The pamphlet, which is posted in English and Spanish versions, meets the requirements under Labor Code section 3551 to notify new employees about California workers’ compensation rights and benefits either at the time of hire or by the end of the first pay period.

The time of hire pamphlet was created in 2011 to help employers and claims administrators ensure employees know what to do in case of workplace injury. It was modified in 2013 to reflect changes made to California’s workers’ compensation system by SB 863.

This pamphlet can be customized as long as the text meets the “time of hire” legal requirements. Title 8, California Code of Regulations section 9883 allows insurers, employers or private enterprises to prepare and publish the pamphlet upon prior approval of the form and content of the pamphlet by the Administrative Director. An entity may no longer use a previously approved pamphlet with the old predesignation forms. A revised pamphlet should be submitted for approval with the new forms. Claims administrators will be provided a grace period until September 1, 2014 to send an updated pamphlet.

    I needed to draft you this very small word just to thank you again for the remarkable solutions you’ve shown above. It was certainly strangely generous of you to provide freely precisely what many individuals could possibly have marketed as an e book to generate some bucks for their own end, particularly now that you could have done it if you wanted. These advice also worked like the great way to fully grasp that some people have the identical passion really like my own to figure out many more on the subject of this problem. Certainly there are thousands of more pleasurable sessions up front for individuals who look into your site.
