Worker's Compensation

The paper First Report of Injury (FROI) or DWC Form 1 will no longer be how workers’ compensation injuries are reported to Human Resources.  The First Report of Injury (FROI) will be data entered by the manager into a new on-line portal through Origami claims software. 

 

Look for more information here as we get closer to February 1st.
