Alamaraz v. Enviroserve

Date: August 11, 2011

California Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board

The Appeals Board issued an en banc decision affecting California workers’ compensation disability ratings.  The decision has thrown the industry into legal disarray with applicant attorneys opening closed cases.  The Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau filed for an extra 5.8 percent rate increase attributing it to "conservative" estimates of what the decision would cost California employers.  The Appeals Board granted a petition to reconsider.  NFIB filed an amicus brief asking the Board to reverse its decision on the disability ratings.

Status: DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed 04/28/09.  Board ruled in favor of claimant 9/3/09.
