NEW STATE FORMS & NOTICES FOR NONSUBSCRIBING BUSINESSES
The state-required notices for both nonsubscribing and subscribing businesses have been updated to reflect the new administration, the Texas Department of Insurance-Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC).
The revised forms and notices for Texas nonsubscribers include:
DWC Form 5 (formerly the TWCC 5) used to notify the DWC of a business’ nonsubscriber status both when the business becomes a nonsubscriber initially and annually thereafter.
DWC Form 205 (formerly the TWCC 205) for nonsubscribing businesses with more than one location.
DWC Notice 5 and DWC Notice 5s (formerly the TWCC Notice 5 and TWCC Notice 5s) must be posted in certain areas of workplace to notify employees of the company’s nonsubscriber status.
DWC Form 7 and DWC Form 7s (formerly the TWCC 7 and TWCC 7 Supplement) used to report lost time injuries, occupational diseases and fatalities.
The official deadline for utilizing of the revised DWC forms is May 1, 2006 but employers may begin utilizing the forms immediately.
The new nonsubscriber forms are available on the Forms and Notices section on the main page of TXANS’ website at www.txans.org
