On August 9, 2022, the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) announced that all DWC district offices except Eureka will accept in-person walk-through documents beginning September 6, 2022, pursuant to CCR 10789. Eureka is permanently a virtual office and walk-through documents should be brought to the DWC Santa Rosa district office.
Additionally, effective September 6, 2022, DWC will not accept virtual walk-throughs in the Lifesize platform. Virtual walk-throughs were put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. DWC will only accept walk-through documents in-person. Walk-throughs will be available Monday through Friday, except on holidays when the Division’s offices are closed.
DWC will still accept by mail or e-filing any documents that are to be acted upon by a judge, including those that may otherwise be submitted by walk-through. If there are questions, parties may contact the DWC call center at (909) 383-4522.
