Readers of the Compendium may recall the April 2021 newsletter reporting that, according to Commissioner’s Bulletin #B-0012-21, the Division would relocate its Austin headquarters in the summer of 2022 to the Capitol Complex at 1601 Congress Avenue in Austin. 

On May 2, however, the Division announced that the Austin Field Office would hold hearings on a temporary basis in the Hobby Building at 333 Guadalupe starting on July 18, 2022. 

Two days later, on May 4, DWC rescinded its plans to move temporarily to the Hobby Building and announced that it will continue to hold hearings at the current Metro location through the summer. The move to 1601 Congress Avenue will be announced when the moving date is finalized.
