DFS Rule Workshop

Jul 16, 2009

The Florida DFS, Division of Workers’ Compensation has issued a Notice of Rulemaking Development regarding the following Rule:

The proposed Rule amendment would delete and replace all language in subsection 69L-6.012(15), F.A.C., and add a new paragraph 69L-6.012(15)(a), F.A.C. The proposed new language would provide that when a corporation or limited liability company named on any Certificate of Election to be Exempt (“Certificate”) remains dissolved or inactive after 90 days from the date of its dissolution or its change in status, the Certificate is immediately revoked. Additional language also provides that when a person named on a Certificate no longer meets the issuance requirements of the Certificate, that Certificate is also revoked. The new paragraph would provide guidance regarding a corporation or limited liability company’s right to petition for a review of a revocation, or to file an appeal. The proposed rule amendment also advances the statutory mandate to facilitate the self-execution of workers’ compensation law pursuant to Chapter 440 F.S.

If a Rule Development Workshop is requested in writing and not deemed unnecessary by the agency head, one will be held at the date, time, and place shown below:
