California Comp Division Seeking Award Nominations

Nominations are due by Jan. 14. These annual awards recognize significant contributors to the betterment of the workers' compensation system.

The California Division of Workers' Compensation is accepting nominations for its new community service awards, which will be presented at the 18th annual educational conferences in February and March 2011. DWC said the nominees should have made "a significant contribution to the betterment of the workers' compensation system by demonstrating exceptional service to the workers' compensation community in the highest professional manner."

"Over the years, we've seen many champions take on extra work to support an effective workers' compensation system for injured workers and employers," said DWC acting Administrative Director Carrie Nevans. "This award is our way of publicly acknowledging how important that work is and showing how much we value those extra efforts."

The agency will evaluate the nominations and honor one Southern California recipient in Los Angeles and another Northern California recipient in Oakland during an award ceremony at the educational conferences' luncheons. These will be annual awards.

Robert Rassp, an attorney, received the first community service award at the 17th annual educational conference in recognition of his efforts as "an exemplary educator and volunteer." Rassp has been educating the workers' compensation community on Medicare set-asides, the American Medical Association guides, and substantial evidence for years; in 2009, he spent seven days in such training, according to DWC.

To nominate someone, use the form available here and submit by Jan. 14, 2011.
