FROM: Jesse M. Frankl, Chairman

RE: Voluntary Agreements


If an agreement has been reached with an injured employee that the matter is being accepted by the employer/insurance carrier, it is imperative that the employer/insurance carrier issue a Voluntary Agreement to be signed by the injured employee and approved by the Workers' Compensation Commission. It is expected that Voluntary Agreements on accepted cases will be submitted as soon as possible prior to or subsequent to the first informal hearing.
