Modification of awards, decisions or orders
Workers' Compensation (WKC) CHAPTER 67, ARTICLE 2
§ 22. Modification of awards, decisions or orders. Upon its own motion
or upon the application of any party in interest, on the ground of a
change in conditions or proof of erroneous wage rate, the board may at
any time, subject to the limitations set forth in sections twenty-five-a
and one hundred and twenty-three of this chapter, review any award,
decision or order and, on such review, may make an award ending,
diminishing or increasing the compensation previously awarded, subject
to the maximum or minimum provided in this chapter, and shall
immediately send to the parties a copy of its decision, which shall
include a statement of the facts which formed the basis of its action.
No such review shall affect such award as regards any moneys already
paid, except that an award increasing the compensation rate may be made
effective from date of injury, and except that if any part of the
compensation due or to become due is unpaid, an award decreasing the
compensation rate may be made effective from the date of injury, and any
payments made prior thereto in excess of such decreased rate shall be
deducted from any unpaid compensation, in such manner and by such
methods as may be determined by the board.
