You're still not required to carry Workers Compensation in Texas (although we recommend it), the following changes were made recently:
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).
The form used to notify TDI can be found below. You can also access the form by going to TDI's website by clicking here.
