After we spoke, I thought of two more questions.

1) Our CA license holder has a NV license.
Because of reciprocity, we are using the same (“C-

Reciprocity would not apply to your situation so

both the Law and Trade exams will be required. In

California only allows one qualifying individual License # 310626

CalChamber in Court
CalChamber Files Lawsuits to Protect
Cost-Saving Workers’ Comp Reforms
The California Chamber of Commerce has gone to court to overturn three cases that weaken
2004 workers’ compensation reforms enacted to make the calculation of permanent disability
awards more objective.

Medical Guidelines

The required use of the American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines is at risk in what are commonly
referred to as the Almaraz/Guzman decisions issued by the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB)
last September.

These cases are on appeal and the CalChamber filed a friend-of-the-court brief because the WCAB has
erroneously treated one element of the calculation—the AMA guidelines—as rebuttable even though the law
does not permit rebuttal of any of the elements that go into calculating the percentage of permanent disability.

A February 2009 decision issued by the entire WCAB consolidated the cases of Mario Almaraz v.
Environmental Recovery Services and State Compensation Insurance Fund and Joyce Guzman v. Milpitas
Unified School District and Keenan Associates (2009). The decision held that:

• the AMA guidelines portion of the 2005 permanent disability schedule is rebuttable;
• the AMA guidelines portion of the 2005 permanent disability schedule is rebutted by showing that an
impairment rating based on the AMA guidelines would result in a permanent disability award that would
be inequitable, disproportionate, and not a fair and accurate measure of the employee’s permanent
disability; and
• when an impairment rating based on the AMA guidelines has been rebutted, the WCAB may make an
impairment determination that considers medical opinions not based on or only partially based on the
AMA guidelines.

In response to requests for reconsideration, WCAB agreed to rehear the cases. In its orders granting
reconsideration, the WCAB requested input from amici curiae.

In response, CalChamber filed an amicus brief that focused on the plain language of the statute and the
Legislature’s intent in passing the workers’ compensation reforms of 2004 to support a reversal of the board’s

In September 2009, WCAB issued its new decisions in the Almaraz/Guzman cases. While the new decision
marked a significant departure from the broad ruling issued in February 2009, it nonetheless still leaves room
for rebutting the permanent disability rating schedule through the guidelines.

Future Earning Capacity

The method for calculating an injured worker’s diminished future earning capacity is at issue in the case of
Ogilvie v. Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.

In Ogilvie, the WCAB held that the diminished future earning capacity adjustment used by the 2005 permanent
disability schedule could also be rebutted. The WCAB provided an alternate means to determine this
adjustment, and held that the adjustment used by the 2005 permanent disability schedule was rebutted
whenever the WCAB’s method reached a different result.

As with the Almaraz/Guzman cases, WCAB also agreed to reconsider Ogilvie, and issued its new ruling along
with the Almaraz/Guzman cases. Here, the WCAB reaffirmed its original decision concluding that the future
earning capacity factor can be rebutted. In keeping with Almaraz/Guzman, the WCAB reiterated its position that
the permanent disability schedule is rebuttable. This case is also on appeal.

The CalChamber filed a friend-of-the-court brief in Ogilvie, arguing that the WCAB’s ruling created an ad hoc
approach to the permanent disability calculations and reintroduces the use of subjective, unquantifiable factors
that the Legislature had squarely rejected.

Legislative Intent

In both briefs, the CalChamber notes that in enacting the 2004 reform legislation (SB 899), the Legislature
considered the cost of the old system to employers, and the economic crisis that threatened the very viability of
the system as whole. It concluded that something must be done, and did it. The policy decision must be
respected and implemented as intended, the CalChamber argues.

The Legislature sought to eliminate the vagueness and subjectivity of the old system by mandating the method
for calculating the percentage of permanent disability. In short, the new system eliminated subjectivity and
guesswork from permanent disability calculations, thereby ensuring that similarly situated employees are
treated equally, promoting fairness and consistency.

Permitting the use of the AMA guidelines to be rebutted on an individualized basis or allowing a specific
element of the permanent disability calculation to be rebutted by creating an individualized factor for
determining diminished future earning capacity “would increase costs to the employers virtually across the
board and is flatly irreconcilable” with the express intention of the Legislature in enacting the workers’
compensation reform law, the CalChamber argues in the brief.

The CalChamber is urging the court to overturn both of these erroneous WCAB decisions.

Draft Greenhouse Gas Rule Omits Key Issues
A state agency’s preliminary draft for a cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions omits controversial
elements that are critical to determining whether the program can succeed or be cost effective, according to the California
Chamber of Commerce.

In a letter to California Air Resources Board (ARB) Chairman Mary Nichols, the CalChamber
emphasized the importance of decisions on how greenhouse gas (carbon) allowances will be
distributed, whether and how businesses can offset emissions at one site with reduced emissions at
another, and linking California’s program with future national and international ones.
Those issues will be critical to the overall success of the cap-and-trade program and whether California
can cost-effectively meet the greenhouse gas reduction goals required by the state’s climate change law, AB 32, the
CalChamber said.

CalChamber Recommendations

The CalChamber recommended that:

• Auctioning of greenhouse gas allowances be kept to a minimum because of the significant costs a 100 percent
auction system would impose on California businesses and consumers. The CalChamber noted that ARB’s
Economic and Allocation Advisory Committee has estimated California businesses would have to pay $143 billion
between 2012 and 2020 just to continue operating in the state if allowance prices reach $60 per ton by 2020 in a
100 percent auction system. A thorough economic analysis is needed before the ARB considers final adoption of
a rule, the CalChamber said.
• The CalChamber also strongly suggested that an auction system or other revenue-raising mechanism would be
contrary to the legislative intent of AB 32. A letter by the author of the legislation states that the intent of AB 32 is
for any revenues raised to be used only for direct administrative costs. Accordingly, the CalChamber does not
believe ARB has the legal authority to adopt revenues beyond a reasonable charge for administrative activities.
• The state avoid taking a California-only approach to drafting its new program and instead allow for “seamless
linkages with other national and international programs from the outset.”
• The program allow a broader use of offsets than the 4 percent limit detailed in the preliminary draft rule. Real,
verifiable offsets should not be limited geographically. Research has shown that maximizing the use of offsets
would be one of the most effective tools for reducing program costs while achieving AB 32’s greenhouse gas
reduction goals, the CalChamber noted.
• ARB analyze the potential economic impacts of bringing transportation fuels into the cap-and-trade program
before developing regulations to speed the timeline for including fuels. Sticking with the 2015 timeline for including
transportation fuels and natural gas in the program allows California time to transition the cap and trade program
to include fuels, the CalChamber wrote.

What to do when OSHA comes knocking on your door
By oshadefense

Many companies fear the day when OSHA shows up at their door – and not necessarily
because they feel that they have something to hide. There is simply a lack of
understanding of what an employer should do during an OSHA inspection – what they
will ask for and what you are expected to do.

Why does OSHA conduct inspections?

OSHA conducts workplace inspections in order to determine if employers are complying
with standards issued by the agency for safe and healthful workplaces. Inspections are
conducted by OSHA Compliance Safety and Health Officers who are trained in the
OSHA standards and in the recognition of safety and health hazards. If your state has its
own occupational safety and health programs, it may conduct inspections using qualified
state compliance safety and health officers.

Will we receive notice if OSHA is coming?

Actually, inspections are typically conducted without advance notice. Alerting an
employer without proper authorization in advance of an OSHA inspection can result in a
fine of up to $1,000 and/or a six-month jail term. This is true for both OSHA compliance
officers and state inspectors. There are special circumstances under which OSHA may
give notice to the employer, but the notice would still be less than 24 hours.
Circumstances include, but are not limited to:

• Imminent danger situations that require correction as soon as possible;

• Inspection that must take place after regular business hours or which require
special preparation;
• Cases where notice is required to assure that the employer and employee
representative or other personnel will be present;
• Cases where an inspection must be delayed for more than 5 working days when
there is good cause; and
• Situations in which the OSHA area director determines that advance notice would
produce a more thorough or effective inspection.

Can we refuse to let the compliance officer in?

You have the right to refuse to let the compliance officer inspect your premises.
However, the inspector will report such refusals to the OSHA Area Director who may
initiate the process to obtain a search warrant for your facility.

Will OSHA tell us why they are inspecting our operations?

When OSHA comes to your facility, they’ll conduct an opening conference in which they
explain the reason for the inspection, for example, because of an employee complaint,
because the company falls into a high hazard category, or because the business falls into
an enhanced enforcement plan.
What types of materials and records will the compliance officer likely ask to see?
You should always assume that the compliance officer will ask to review work site injury
& illness and posting of the official OSHA poster. Other records, appropriate to the
inquiry, may also be requested, such as written plan and programs, training records,
equipment inspection records, or any other records that pertain to the inspection.

Cal/OSHA Corner
Injury/Illness Summary (Form 300A)
Must Be Posted Starting February 1
Is my company required to post the Form 300 beginning February 1?

If your company had 10 or fewer employees at all times during the last calendar year, your company does not need
to keep Cal/OSHA injury and illness records.
This exemption also applies if your company’s Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code is included in Table 1 of
Article 2 of the regulations adopted by California’s Division of Labor Statistics and Research and enforced by
Mel Davis
Cal/OSHA Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. The role of the federal
Consultant Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is to assure the safety and health of U.S. workers by setting
and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging
continual improvement in workplace safety and health.

OSHA or the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics may ask you to participate in a random survey to provide records as detailed in the
provisions of Section 14300.41 or Section 14300.42.

Form 300, 300A

The Form 300 is used to record, or log, all injuries and illnesses, except those that have been determined to be first aid only.
Typically, the Form 300 is not posted because there may be employee privacy issues involved.

As an employer, you are not to include the employee’s name for specific injuries or illnesses listed in Section 14300.29(b)(7), such
as needle sticks, HIV infection, hepatitis, sexual assault and others. In addition, an employee suffering from an injury or illness not
listed as a privacy issue may request that his/her name not be entered on the log.

Another form, the 300A, must be completed and posted beginning February 1. This form contains a summary of the total number
of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the previous year. Employers are required to post only the summary
(Form 300A)—not the Form 300 (Log)—from February 1 to April 30.

The summary must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year and were logged on
the Form 300 (Log). Employment information about the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the
calendar year also is required to assist in calculating incidence rates. Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in the
previous year must post the summary with zeros on the “total” line. A company executive must certify all establishment

The form is to be displayed in a common area where notices to employees usually are posted. Employers must make a copy of
the summary available to employees who move from worksite to worksite, such as construction workers, and employees who do
not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis.

All employers covered by California’s safety and health regulations need to comply with safety and health standards and must
report verbally within eight hours to the nearest Cal/OSHA district office all fatal accidents or the hospitalization of three or more
employees. Those employers exempt from the recordkeeping requirements must continue to file reports of occupational injuries
and illnesses with the state Division of Labor Statistics and Research.

occur when workers try to pull or lift a heavy or awkward
object without help or lift an object while twisting from the
waist. When carrying a load, avoid bending or lifting
upward unnecessarily. Keep as much of the load as you
can at waist level.

Get help with heavy loads. Don't try to move or lift an

object you can't handle. Instead of lifting a 75-pound
load, break it down into smaller parts. If you can't break
it down, get help from a mechanical device or lift it with
another worker. Make sure moving equipment works
properly or it will cause you to strain unnecessarily just
trying to get it to work. If the wheels on a cart are not
aligned, you could strain your arms, shoulders, and back
trying to move it.

Change your working positions frequently. Chronic strain

due to an unchanging work position can weaken your
back, arms, and shoulders. Adjust working heights to
prevent slumping or excessive reaching. A vicious cycle
