CLARIFICATION OF TWCC ADVISORY 96-03
Advisory 96-03 states that Publication Number PI96-007A (3- 96), "Employee Rights and Responsibilities Under the Texas Workers' Compensation System", is the only publication that can be used by employers to ensure compliance with Rule 120.2. The intent of Advisory 96-03 was to clarify that the TWCC employee brochure does not meet the intent of Rule 120.2.
While TWCC prefers that employers use Publication Number PI96-007A (3-96), any other formatted version of "Employee Rights and Responsibilities Under the Texas Workers' Compensation System" provided by TWCC can be used and will meet the requirements of Rule 120.2
Employers should note that Rule 120.2 specifies that the language adopted by the Commissioners must be used without any changes or additional words.
