Light Duty

Work prescribed by an employee's attending physician to fall within certain physical restrictions while the employee continues to heal from a compensable work-related injury or occupational disease.

List of Approved Medical Practitioners

The Workers' Compensation Commission Chairman (in consultation with the Workers' Compensation Advisory Board) may establish a list of approved physicians and other practitioners who may render medical services to employees with compensable work- related injuries or occupational diseases. Administrative Regulation 31-280-1 specifies standards for approval of medical practitioners to treat employees in workers' compensation cases, as well as criteria for the removal of practitioners from the list.

Lump Sum Payment

Payment of a workers' compensation award of benefits or other sum(s) as one or more partial or total payment(s), instead of the more common weekly or biweekly payments which equally distribute such sum(s). A lump sum payment may result from a Commutation or a Stipulation.
