At its meeting on June 17, 2008, the Workers' Compensation Board adopted minor amendments to Parts 300, 303 and 310 of its regulations. The amendments correct: 1) references to obsolete forms and/or addresses; 2) typographical, grammatical and punctuation errors; and 3) gender based language and minor inaccuracies. One correction conforms the regulation to the statutory language as amended by Chapter 6 of the Laws of 2007. Specifically, subdivision (d) of section 300.22 is amended to include the temporary payment of prescribed medicines without prejudice. Other corrections include the repeal of Sections 300.28 and 310.1.
The Notice of Adoption of the amendments to Parts 300, 303 and 310 were published in the State Register on July 2, 2008, effective on that date.
