Feb 23, 2010

Following its approval by the Florida Cabinet on January 26, 2010, Rule 69O-189.003 relating to Workers’ Compensation; Application and Audit Procedures was filed with the Florida Department of State on February 18, 2010.  The Rule will be effective on March 10, 2010. 

Under the new Rule, electronic signatures will be allowed in applications for workers’ compensation coverage, as well as in annual audits, as long as the electronic signature process complies with Florida’s Uniform Electronic Transaction Act. 

Rule 69O-189.003 explicitly provides the procedures for audits required by the former Rule.  Further, it also raises the threshold for an onsite audit from $5,000 to $10,000.  Audits under $10,000 will be handled by mail.

A copy of the final Rule is attached.
