WC Announces Schedule Loss of Use Informational Webinars

4 May 2018 11:48 AM | Babette Grey (Administrator)

As part of the 2017 executive budget, Workers’ Compensation law §15(3)(x) required the Workers' Compensation Board to implement new Permanency Impairment Guidelines for Schedule Loss of Use (SLU) evaluations. The new 2018 SLU Guidelines took effect January 1, 2018.

The Board's Medical Director and Senior Policy Advisor, Elain Sobol Berger, MD, JD will provide training in the 2018 Guidelines' approach to assessing SLU permanent impairment. Case studies will demonstrate how to apply the SLU principles and objective criteria in making an SLU determination.

There will be four webinars, so you can register for the time that works best for you. Each webinar will last approximately one hour and will include time for questions and answers. Space is limited, so please register early. When you click ‘register here’, you will be taken to a general information page. You must click ‘Register’ on the bottom of that page to sign up.

More information

For more information on the Schedule Loss of Use Guidelines, please see Subject No. 046-1011. The enabling regulation is set forth at 12 NYCRR 325-1.6, and is also available at the Board's website.
