Under Labor Code 5908.5, the Workers Compensation Appeals Board must act on a petition for rehearing within 60 days.  The Board’s current practice of granting rehearing for study does not comply with the statute.  Though the Board says it carefully reviews petitions before granting-for-study, its grant-for-study orders do not state in detail the reasons for its order granting rehearing for study nor the evidence supporting the order, as the statute requires.  However, if the Board grants rehearing with a statutorily compliant order, it can then reconsider the matter and issue an opinion after rehearing sometime later–it need not do so with the statutory 60-day deadline.
