California: Electronic Adjudication Management System
The Division of Workers' Compensation adopted new court administrator regulations to support the EAMS, which have been approved by the Office of Administrative Law and filed with the secretary of state.
The new rules went into effect on Nov. 17. The regulations require documents to be filed using revised forms so that the data provided can be scanned into EAMS where it automatically populates an electronic case file and triggers work flows. Regulations governing the Disability Evaluation Unit and Retraining and Return to Work Unit were also updated. The complete regulations are posted on the DWC Web site: www.dwc/DWCPropRegs/EAMS_regulations/EAMS_regulations.htm.
