FL: DWC to Hold Workshop on Proposed Rule Changes for Compensation Notice

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida Division of Workers' Compensation has announced a workshop on the Notice of Proposed Rule Amendment for the Division of Workers' Compensation Rule 69L-6.007, Compensation Notice, for Tuesday, June 29, 2010 @ 1:00 pm in Room 2100, Alexander Building, 2020 Capital Circle SE, Tallahassee, Florida.

By law every employer who has secured workers' compensation insurance must post in its place of business a workers' compensation notice and an Anti-Fraud Reward Program notice. The DWC by rule prescribes the form of the notices and requires carriers to provide the notices to policyholders. Currently, Rule 69L-6.007 requires carriers to furnish employers with a compensation notice, commonly referred to as the "broken arm poster" and incorporates the Anti-Fraud Reward Program notice poster. The proposed rule amendment would update the rule and adopt the revised workers' compensation notice posters, including the Spanish version of the poster.
