The Division is accepting public comments on three new proposed forms:

DWC Form-003, Employer’s Wage Statement: The proposed new DWC-003 includes substantially the same information contained in the old form, however, the new form appears much clearer and less complicated for employers to complete.

DWC Form-003ME, Employee’s Multiple Employment Wage Statement: This form provides the injured employee a way to provide wage information for other employers to the Carrier for calculation of the average weekly wage and issue income benefits when the injury affects ability to work.

DWC Form-003SD, Employer’s Wage Statement for School Districts, allows employers a way to report wage information to the Carrier to calculate average weekly wage and issue income benefits for school district employees.    

DWC will consider all substantive comments before adopting the proposed new forms which may be viewed here

Written comments should be submitted on the forms by 5:00 p.m. on June 21, 2022 to:
