Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation to Consider Proposed Rule for Electronic Submission of Exemption Applications

Jan 4, 2013


The Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation (“DWC”) has submitted a Notice of Proposed Rule Development for Rule 69L-6.012, F.A.C., entitled “Notice of Election to Be Exempt.”

The proposed Rule implements applicable sections of HB 941, which was enacted in 2012 to amend Section 440.05, F.S. by revising the requirements for submitting a notice of election of exemption. The proposed Rule provides for electronic submission of exemption applications (Form DFS-F2-DWC-250, Notice of Election to be Exempt) through the DWC Notice of Election to be Exempt system, along with streamlined reporting requirements.  Other related forms are also updated to reflect the revised reporting requirements.

If requested in writing and not deemed unnecessary by the agency head, a Rule Development Workshop will be held on January 22, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.(ET) in Tallahassee (2012 Capital Circle, SE, Room 102 Hartman Building).
