The California Department of Workers’ Compensation has released regulations requiring all employers within the state to post a new “Notice to Employees – Injuries Caused by Work” notice and “DWC Claim Form 1.” Employers must post this by October 8, 2010. Failure to do so can results in a misdemeanor and civil penalties. Employers must also distribute a new “Your Rights to Workers’ Compensation Benefits” pamphlet to all new employees who start work on or October 8, 2010.
