California Workers’ Comp.; Commutation
I just received the Commutation Award from my Workers’ Comp. Judge; I understand that the Defendant has 30 days to pay or appeal. What if I Appeal? Can the Defendant hold off paying the Commutation until after the WCAB Reconsideration?I have issues with the DEU Rating that the Award is based on; I intend to file a Recon or Request for Removal; but I need this money ASAP; so I am asking if I go to Recon will they still have to pay within the 30 days; or can they hold of paying the Commuted portion of the Award until we hear back from the WCAB?
