The California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has launched a new website to help workers injured at work. The site includes easy step-by-step instructions to help workers’ navigate through the process. According to the Administrative Director of the DWC Rosa Moran, “when a worker is hurt on the job, they need more than a doctor; they need accurate information and assistance.” The new website illustrates the DWC’s efforts to assist workers, employers and claims administrators.
By law employers must also have the official CA Workers’ Compensation labor law poster displayed in the workplace for employees to view.
The mandatory-to-post notice and the new online site are just some of the ways important information is communicated to employees and employers as well. But the fun doesn’t end here. There are handy fact sheets available in printed form at the DWC’s 24 district offices.
In California workers’ compensation insurance provides 5 basic benefits:
- Medical care
- Temporary disability benefits
- Permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits (exceptions apply)
- Death benefits
