As an alternative to the issuance of an order staying execution, the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board may direct by order that no certified copy be issued. Such an order shall have the same effect as an order staying execution issued under similar circumstances.
(a) Before staying execution or issuing order withholding issuance of a certified copy of an order, decision or award, the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board in its discretion may require the filing of a bond from an approved surety equivalent to twice the probable amount of liability in the case.
(b) The bond shall be filed in the record of the case.
