Title 20 published on 20-May-2017 03:30
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 20 CFR Part 703 after this date.
The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) published a notice of proposed rulemaking and companion direct final rule in the Federal Register on March 12, 2015, broadening the acceptable methods by which claimants, employers, and insurers can communicate with OWCP and each other regarding claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions. The comment period closed on May 11, 2015. OWCP did not receive significant adverse comment and therefore the direct final rule took effect on June 10, 2015. For these reasons, OWCP is withdrawing the notice of proposed rulemaking.
The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs is making technical amendments to reflect the dissolution of the Employment Standards Administration and the Secretary's delegation of authority to administer the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (and its extensions) and the Black Lung Benefits Act to the Director, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs. The amendments also add and update Internet addresses, and update cross-references to other regulations.
