BILL NUMBER:S1401 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the workers' compensation law, in relation to setting a time limit for requesting full board review of unanimous board panel decisions PURPOSE: This bill sets a 3D-day time limit for requesting review by the full Board of a unanimous Workers' compensation Board panel decision, and bars applicants who request review by the full Board from merely resubmitting the same application for review they had presented to the Boardpanel. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends Workers' compensation Law § 23 to apply the 30-day time limit for appeals to both appeals from a divided panel ("mandatory" appeals) and appeals from a unanimous panel ("discretionary" appeals). It further requires that any appeal to the full Board must raise arguments concerning the deficiencies of the panel's decision. Section 2 of the bill amends workers' compensation Law § 142(2) to require that a discretionary appeal be made in conformity with Workers' Compensation Law § 23.
