The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), in conjunction with its vendor partners, will host an electronic filing expo in San Bernardino on Tuesday, Feb. 28. The event is free and anyone interested in e-filing or JET File is encouraged to attend.
Electronic filing is the fastest way to get documents into EAMS, DWC’s electronic case management system for the workers’ compensation courts. There are two ways to file electronically: e-forms and JET File. JET File is best suited for large-volume filers of the six most used court forms, while e-forms are available for all forms. The Feb. 28 expo will provide information about, and demonstrations of both filing methods.
Filers looking for faster, easier and more cost-effective alternatives to paper forms are encouraged to attend this electronic filing expo:
Tuesday, Feb. 28
10 a.m.-noon (morning session)
1-3 p.m. (afternoon session)
DWC San Bernardino District Office
1st floor, Rehab Conference Room
464 W. Fourth Street
San Bernardino, CA 92401
Please note there may be costs for parking in this area.
No registration is necessary. Filers can drop in any time between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The program will repeat through the day. There will be an hour lunch break from noon until 1 p.m.
This is the fifth e-filing expo hosted by DWC, following events in Santa Ana, Los Angeles, Van Nuys and Oakland. It is the first in San Bernardino County.
“The expo gives filers a chance to explore options in electronic filing and take a closer look of JET File,” said Mark Fudem, acting associate chief judge for EAMS. “This will also be an opportunity for filers to get answers to their questions and to sign up to e-file.”
The expo will include:
• A walkthrough of each electronic filing method and its benefits for filers
• Access to tech and business experts, who will be available for consultation and questions about each filing method
• Approved software and third-party filing service providers, who can demonstrate and answer questions about products that help filers take advantage of the speed and efficiency of electronic filing
• Ability to sign up for electronic filing immediately
