Sample text

Thus, the worker used as the standard in the 1914 schedule was a 39-year-old ditch digger (laborer). ____________ 2 While the California workers’ compensation statute does not include a schedule with the duration of PPD benefits associated with the loss of or loss of use of particular body parts, Section 4662 of the California Labor Code conclusively presumes that certain types of impairments (such as loss of both hands or incurable insanity) constitute permanent total disability. Most states have similar provisions that represent a statutory schedule of particularly serous injuries that are presumed to result in permanent total disability.

This is particularly true because the criteria often come into conflict in evaluating PPD benefit systems, and the more criteria in use, the greater the number of conflicts and trade-offs that must be considered. We are, however, persuaded that all five criteria are important considerations when designing policy to compensate for PPD. “Efficiency” is a term that has been used by some economists to include what we term “administrative efficiency” and “prevention, compensation, and rehabilitation system efficiency,” and the explicit difference in these terms should help in distinguishing between the two meanings of efficiency.

We would also like to thank Irina Nemirovsky at the Commission for her help and support. We appreciate the support of numerous people in the California Department of Labor and Department of Industrial Relations in acquiring the data for this project. In particular, we would like to thank Rich Kilthau of the Employment Development Department and Blair Megowan of the Disability Evaluation Unit. Many colleagues provided valuable input into this project. Craig Martin (RAND) and Sue Polich (RAND) provided excellent programming support throughout this project.
