DWC offers educational resources to help avoid penalties

Texas has a very robust enforcement system as demonstrated by the numerous disciplinary orders issued each month. While some system participants may view administrative penalties as part of the “cost of doing business” in this state, for those that don’t like to pay fines, DWC now offers its CompCourses live webinar series where system participants can learn more about the Texas workers’ compensation system.
The most recent CompCourses live webinar was presented on May 22, 2024 and covered presiding officer directives (PODs). The recording is now available on DWC’s website and can also be viewed here. As an added bonus, attendees also receive continuing education credit for attending a live CompCourses webinar so stay tuned for upcoming webinars.
