AUSTIN, TX – On Wednesday, February 29, 2012 the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) will launch the redesign of its homepage on the TDI website at http://www.tdi.texas.gov/wc/indexwc.html.
In an effort to make online resources for workers’ compensation system participants more user friendly, the TDI-DWC homepage redesign features a new tab style menu with three sections to assist system participants in accessing workers’ compensation information.
- Topics A-Z features an alphabetical listing of workers’ compensation-related subject matter that directly links to website content.
- Online Services features direct links to services, including: safety violation reporting, employer coverage verification and attorney fee processing.
- Resources features direct links to resources, including the Texas Labor Code, TDI-DWC rules, calendar of events and training and TDI-DWC forms.
The TDI-DWC homepage on the TDI website also features Employee and Employer web pages.
The Employee webpage outlines the responsibilities of the TDI-DWC and the Office of Injured Employee Counsel (OIEC). The web page also provides direct links to Employee Frequently Asked Questions and information on the different types of the workers’ compensation benefits and returning to work after a work-related injury or illness.
The Employer web page provides direct links to information for employers with and without workers’ compensation coverage, including injury, illness and fatality reporting requirements; notification of coverage requirements to employees and the TDI-DWC; Frequently Asked Questions and workplace safety.
