14300.6 - Determination of New Cases

Recordkeeping Carpenter

 

Recurring symptoms of chronic illness are not new cases (e.g., cancer, asbestosis, silicosis, etc.)

Each episode caused by a new event or exposure in the work environment is a new case (e.g., occupational asthma, skin disorders).

If there is a medical opinion regarding resolution of a case, the employer must follow that opinion about whether the case is a new case or a recurrence.
