2 WCAB Dep. Comm. Positions Available – Apply Now!

Happy Monday, dear readers!

Your humble blogger truly hopes you had a restful and meaningful Thanksgiving holiday.  If you didn’t, I imagine that your inbox is currently stuffed with auto-reply e-mails admonishing you for continuing to work as people got on with Grateful Thanksgiving Thursday, Frenzied Shopping Black Friday, Regret and Shame Saturday, and Gearing-Up-For-Cyber-Monday Monday.

Well, as the saying goes, “Christmas came early” and your humble blogger brings to you news of an excellent opportunity.

The WCAB, probably tired of having to shovel petitions for recon and removal out of their way to get to work, has announced openings for two deputy commissioner positions.  The pay looks good and if you’re a practicing attorney now, you might get to shift your focus from scorched Earth applicant’s practice or delay-and-deny defense practice to craft some meaningful guidance for the workers’ compensation community.

Seriously guys – there are empty seats for the commissioners’ bench and two vacancies for the deputy commissioners.  Perhaps it’s time someone took a break from litigating panel disputes and calculating interest on $294 in unpaid TTD to make a positive change.

We could use some decisive rulings on whether post 1/1/13 injuries still allow for vocational rehabilitation reports and rebuttals, or whether compensable consequence psyche allows temporary disability benefits in non-violent cases.

If you’re ready to make a change, submit your application before the deadline (December 4, 2017).

As for me, aside from doubting my own qualifications for the job, no doubt I would have to surrender my cheerful and witty commentary as part of the position, and so I shall remain, as I ever have been, your humble blogger.
