New California Law for 2009 – Reporting Workplace Injuries

Employers currently must file a form 5020 with the Division of Labor Statistics and Research (DLSR) within five days of an incident. Once new regulations are finalized, insured employers must file a form to be prescribed by the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) with the DWC, and self-insured employers must use a new, yet to be created, electronic form within the time specified by the DWC.

Talk to your insurance carrier or human resources consultant to ensure you’re using the most up-to-date forms.
