After dipping toe in digital signature pool, Labor now ready to jump right in

The Labor Department has always required citizens to fill out forms by hand, sign them with a pen and send them back by mail or possibly scan them in and email them back. But the Office of Workers’ Compensation Program decided in early 2022 to take the plunge into digital signatures.
Robin Crisp, an IT officer in the Office of the Chief Information Officer’s Business Application Services at the Labor Department, said in less than six months his office helped Labor make the break from wet signatures.
