Rule No. 69L-6.026
Rule Title Periodic Reports (REPEAL)
Date 2-19-2013
Time 10:00 AM
Place Rm. 102 Hartman Bldg.
Type Hearing
Summary of Rule Rule 69L-6.026, F.A.C., requires employers who are issued stop-work orders, where the assessed penalty exceeds $50,000, to file quarterly compliance reports with the Division of Workers’ Compensation. The Division is now able to efficiently monitor such compliance through the use of their data systems, which renders the filing of such employer reports unnecessary. Likewise, given the elimination of the need to file such reports, the rule, likewise, becomes unnecessary and is repealed.
