The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted a corrected Spanish language time of hire pamphlet on its website. The previously posted Spanish language version of the pamphlet contained outdated predesignation of personal physician and notice of personal chiropractor forms.

The Division apologizes for any inconvenience this error may have caused.

The optional time of hire pamphlet is presented in a graphic format that can be customized to meet individual needs and is also offered in “text only” format, which gives claims administrators the option to more fully customize the presentation.

Title 8, California Code of Regulations section 9883 allows insurers, employers or private enterprises prepare and publish the pamphlet upon prior approval of the form and content of the pamphlet by the DWC Administrative Director. An entity should no longer use an approved pamphlet with the old predesignation forms and a revised pamphlet should be re-submitted with the new forms. Due to the short notice provided, the parties will be provided a grace period until September 1, 2014 to send their updated pamphlet.
