The basics of the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board
In many workers' compensation cases that are appealed, the case is first reviewed by the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB). The WCAB is a seven-member judical body appointed by the governor and approved by the state sneate.
The WCAB mainly reconsiders petitions for appeal and regulates the process of adopting rules and procedures for workers' compensation cases. Its powers are vested by the labor code and it oversees the judges of the Division of Workers' Compensation.
