Responding to Hurricane Harvey, Gov. Abbott declared a state of disaster in several Texas counties. Following the declaration, the Division issued a bulletin extending certain deadlines for workers’ compensation processes and procedures residing in the disaster affected counties. Effective January 10, 2018, the Division will lift the bulletin and all standard workers’ compensation deadlines and procedures will go back into effect. The Division bulletin is availablehere.
