Seasonal Employees Simplified

Other proposed form changes include a complete (and long overdue) overhaul of the forms relating to adjusting income benefits for seasonal employees. The DWC intends to retire Form-054 (Notice to Employee: Intention to Request Division Permission to Adjust Benefits) and Form-056 (Seasonal Employee Wage Information from Texas Workforce Commission Records). The proposed new Form-055 will combine the Notice to Employee and Carrier’s Request to Adjust Average Weekly Wage. The DWC invites all who wish to submit comments on the proposed changes to email them to by 5 pm CST on September 18th.
