- State law now requires the employer to file written notice of the termination with the TDI (Texas Department of Insurance) Division of Workers' Compensation, if an employer decides to cancel its workers' compensation coverage
- This notice must be sent via certified mail or electronically no later than the 10th day after the date on which the employer notifies the insurance company to terminate coverage
In addition to providing notices at the time of termination, an employer without coverage must: (1) file Notice of No Coverage with DWC annually between Feb. 1 and April 30 of each calendar year; (2) post notice of no coverage in the workplace; (3) notify each newly-hired employee at the time of hire; and (4) report work-related injuries involving absence from work for more than one day (applicable only to employers with five or more employees).
