Division of Workers’ Compensation Moving

We reported back in April, 2021 that the Division would be relocating its Austin headquarters to the new Capitol Complex at 1601 Congress Avenue in the summer of 2022.

In May of this year, however, we reported that plans had changed and operations, including hearings, would continue at the current Metro Center Drive location through the summer of 2022. The move date to the new location would be announced when finalized.

Although we have seen no formal announcement, we now understand that the Austin Field Office will move to the new Barbara Jordan State Office Building at 1601 Congress Avenue on October 10. Director of Media Relations for the Division, Kate Sidora, advises that there are still a few items to work out but nothing that will change the move-in date. We are not yet certain where system participants with business in the field office will be required to park but will update readers in the near future.
