DWC issues notice of proposed emergency rulemaking action and intent to submit Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit emergency regulations to OAL
Today, the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) issued its Notice of Emergency Regulatory Action affecting the Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit. The emergency regulations will be filed with the state’s Office of Administrative Law (OAL) on Dec. 14, 2012. The regulations to be filed with OAL can be found on the DWC website.
OAL has up to 10 days to consider the rules, but may approve them before the 10 days have elapsed. Upon OAL approval and filing with the Secretary of State, the regulations are effective for 180 days while the Division initiates formal rulemaking procedures to adopt permanent regulations.
