Division of 

Compliance Requirements

Office workers overlooking files There are numerous Iowa workers' compensation compliance requirements for employers, insurance carriers and third party administrators. Iowa companies, other companies that have employees working in Iowa and companies doing business in Iowa, including companies or individuals adjusting workers' compensation claims, must be aware of and comply with those requirements.

Please review the Reporting Requirements and the Compliance Handbook to ensure that you and your company are maintaining compliance with the Iowa Workers' Compensation Act.
