San Francisco, CA – The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has added a new form to give users of the JET File system greater flexibility.
JET File is an electronic filing method that transmits DWC forms and attachments using secure State of California servers. While JET File allows users to bypass paper handling processes in DWC district offices, it has been limited to the six most commonly filed forms since its debut in 2011. The new Unstructured Form adds the ability to file petitions, requests, answers and other frequently filed court documents, including the Request for Withdrawal of Lien and the Petition for Reconsideration. The complete list is on the JET File Unstructured Form Document titles list on DWC’s website.
DWC has tested and certified the new Unstructured Form for participating JET File vendors. Customers should contact their vendor for further information.
DWC has also updated the Declaration of Readiness for Expedited Hearing form to capture the stated reasons for the requested trial.
Electronic filing is the fastest way to get documents into EAMS, DWC’s electronic case management system for the workers’ compensation courts. In addition to JET File, eforms are also available. Information on both methods is posted on DWC’s website.
