§10864. Authority of Workers' Compensation Judge After Decision After Reconsideration.

After a decision after reconsideration has become final, subsequent orders and decisions in a case may be made by any workers' compensation judge to whom the case is assigned pursuant to Section 10348, including orders approving or disapproving compromise and release, orders allowing or disallowing liens, orders for enforcement of the decision of the Appeals Board, orders granting or denying petitions to reopen, orders rescinding, altering or amending the decision of the Appeals Board for good cause under Labor Code Section 5803, orders for increased compensation under Labor Code Section 5814, orders terminating liability, orders for commutation and orders resolving issues that the Board in its decision has left for determination by a workers' compensation judge.

A workers' compensation judge may not make an order correcting a decision after reconsideration for clerical, mathematical, or procedural error. Requests for such correction shall be acted on by the panel that made the decision or if the composition of the Board has changed, by the successor panel.
