Kentucky DWC will be making a few updates to our EDI tables effective January 1, 2015.  These updates include:

1) Currently, we accept Standard Industrial Codes (SIC) and  North American Industry Classification System codes (NAICs) for industry code (DN0025).  Beginning January 1, 2015, we will no longer accept SIC codes.  We are fully migrating to NAICs for industry code (DN0025).  We will accept both 2007 and 2012 NAIC codes. 

2)  Employee Date of Hire (DN0061) will become a mandatory field on the MTC 00 and/or MTC 04.
