  • A Florida Division of Workers' Compensation ("DWC") Rule Hearing scheduled for today, July 23, 2013, on the proposed repeal of Rule 69L-6.009, "Forms and Instructions," was not requested by any member of the public, and therefore not held.

    The Hearing had been scheduled because Rule 69L-6.012, "Notice of Election to be Exempt," was amended to incorporate by reference all forms contained in Rule 69L-6.009, thus rendering Rule 69L-6.009 duplicative and unnecessary, according to the DWC.

    Now, unless the DWC issues a related Notice of Change, the proposed repeal will be scheduled for final adoption by the Florida Cabinet.

    Rule 69L-6.009 incorporated the following forms, all of which were most recently updated in 2008:

    • DWC 250: Notice of Election to be Exempt and instructions for same (Instructions for Completing Notice of Election to be Exempt

    • DWC 250-R: Revocation of Election to be Exempt
    • DWC 251: Notice of Election of Coverage
    • DWC 251-R: Revocation of Election of Coverage
    • DWC 252: Certificate of Election to be Exempt
