Special Lien Scan Unit (California)

Postby davidd on Thu Mar 05, 2009 4:18 am

Reported in WorkCompCentral News today - this is paraphrased:
The California Division of Workers' Compensation has set up a special unit at its Oakland headquarters to handle a backlog of liens that has been piling up since the division launched the Electronic Adjudication Management System (EAMS) last August, policy and legislation chief Susan Gard said Wednesday.

Gard said the division assigned four employees and a supervisor to the task of scanning the lien documents received by Workers' Compensation Appeals Board district offices all around the state into EAMS. She said the special unit was set up about a month ago. It has already caught up with the liens filed at the Oakland board and is now starting on San Diego liens.

She could provide only a rough estimate, but she said she hopes the division will eliminate the lien backlog by August.
