Chapter 4.5. Division of Workers' Compensation
Subchapter 2. Workers' Compensation Appeals Board--Rules and Practice Procedure
Article 13. Liens
§10772. Unemployment Compensation Disability Liens.
When an unemployment compensation disability lien is filed by the Employment Development Department, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that the amounts stated therein have been paid to the injured worker by the Employment Development Department.
In any case involving a lien claim for unemployment compensation disability benefits or unemployment compensation benefits and extended duration benefits where it appears that further benefits may have been paid subsequent to the filing of the claim of lien, the workers' compensation judge shall notify the lien claimant when the case is ready for decision or for order approving compromise and release and the lien claimant shall have five (5) days thereafter in which to file and serve an amended lien reflecting all payments made to and including the date of filing of the amended lien.
In cases where a compromise and release is filed and continuing unemployment compensation disability benefits or unemployment compensation benefits and extended duration benefits are being paid, the workers' compensation judge will ascertain the full amount of the lien claim as of the time of the approval of the compromise and release so that the allocation made under the authority of Labor Code Section 4904 may be changed to reflect unemployment compensation disability or unemployment compensation and extended duration payments to the date of decision.
