New Workers’ Compensation Posting Requirements for California Employers

Topics: New Laws & Legislation

Effective October 8, 2010, California employers must comply with new workers' compensation posting requirements as a result of recently passed regulations. All California employers must post a new "Notice to Employees--Injuries Caused by Work" poster by October 8. All employers must also distribute a new "Your Rights to Workers' Compensation Benefits" pamphlet to all new employees who start work on or after October 8. Additionally, employers must begin using a revised DWC-1 Claim Form/Notice of Potential Eligibility. Finally, employers who utilize or who are implementing, changing or terminating a medical provider network (MPN) must create a MPN Notice to post and distribute to injured employees. Failure to comply with the new posting requirements can lead to fines of up to $7,000. For more information on the posting requirements and for sample forms, click here,here,and here.
