Georgia Conformed Panel Removed

The Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation has made changes to its required posting. Minor change of benefit amounts increased (6 places of change within posting) and addition of toll-free number in last paragraph for Lawyer Referral Service. These changes were made to the WC-P1 Physician Panel of 6 and also to the WC-P3 WC/MCO Panel or Managed Care Organization.  The WC-P2 9 Physician Panel has been discontinued.  If you have posted the WC-P2 (#LP9GA2), you must replace it with one of the viable, current options.

Florida Major Change

From the Florida Commission on Human Relations, there has been a new, updated Discrimination posting released. "Pregnancy" has now been added as a protected class of individuals whom employers may not discrimate against.  This updated posting reflects a law change and therefore is a Major change that must be posted in the workplace.  The Florida Commission on Human Relations also updated the posting to reflect their new address at 4075 Esplanade Way Suite 110, Tallahassess, FL 32399




The Florida Department of Revenue has also updated its Unemployment Insurance posting.  The only change was in the verbiage under the third bullet point.  The Department changed the phrase "reemployment assistance benefits" to "unemployment compensation benefits."  This did NOT reflect a law change so it is considered a minor change.
