Amend compromise and release (California)

Postby lacompfun on Tue Mar 12, 2019 7:47 pm

Scenario

1. Compromise and release and resulting order approving list the employer as wrong entity. Name is slightly different employer. All other aspects of Award is fine.

Questions

1. How long do parties have to get Amended order approving C&R?

2. If not amended before 20 days is petition for consideration required?

I think it is 20 days; however mutual mistake of fact probably can overcome a delay beyond the time to object.

If there is no disagreement, you don't need a petition. Just submit the amended C&R with an explanation. I assume it is a typo and you are not actually changing the parties in the case.
