PENALTY DEADLINE SET FOR NONSUBSCRIBER REPORTING REQUIREMENT
The Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) reports that administrative penalties will be levied against nonsubscribing businesses that have not filed the Employer’s Notice of No Coverage or Termination of Coverage (DWC Form-005) beginning on June 6th.
Nonsubscribers must file DWC Form-005 annually on the anniversary date of the original filing for as long as the company is in business and elects to operate as a nonsubscriber. Nonsubscribing employers with multiple locations must file the DWC Form 205, along with the DWC Form 005.
Increased enforcement resulted from legislation passed during the 80th regular session of the Texas legislature, which requires the DWC to issue a report to the legislature on nonsubscriber regulatory compliance rates by the end of this year.
To avoid a costly penalty, please insure your company has met its nonsubscriber filing obligations.
Copies of nonsubscriber forms and notices are available to all employers on TXANS website.
