Before the injury, my regular paydays were bi-monthly. The only reference provided there is to what would be the process for discontinuing payments, which at this point do not appear to be applicable.

I've read the available regulatory citations relating to wage loss compensation at the U. Aren't these payments REQUIRED to be TIMELY, unles there is a claim dispute?

In addition it asks that all those being towed in water sports, riding personal watercraft, or in human-powered boats of any length be required to wear life jackets as well.

The 16-5 decision mirrors a trend among state boating agencies to increase the number of people actually wearing Coast Guard-approved life jackets with the aim of reducing boating fatalities. Forest Service estimates that 82 million people participated in boating in 2010 and Coast Guard statistics show 736 people died in boating accidents that year.

:wack: You would think that people would wear them without being legislated into doing so?

:dunno: I have to agree with this, my boat is 21' but anytime its up on plane, everyone in it has their life vest on.

There is difficulty with the OWCP system for IWs, the system is set up to discourage attorney participation.

The National Boating Safety Advisory Council asked the Coast Guard to consider mandating that anyone aboard a boat less than 18-feet long be required to wear a life jacket when underway.Now some will disagree with me, but I dont care to wear it once I stop and start fishing, and yes I have been thrown out of the boat a couple times by those sneaky stumps that jump out in front of you every now and then.But I still belive its my choice to wear it or not when the motor is off and im fishing, but when shes up on plane, I always have it and the kill switch on.But unlike the Council recommendation, which would apply to all ages, most state laws apply just to children and specify varying age cutoffs, typically 12 and under. According to a Coast Guard mathematical model, if a 70 percent wear rate was achieved, mandating boaters nationwide to wear life jackets in boats less than 18-feet could save 71 lives each year.But unlike the Council recommendation, which would apply to all ages, most state laws apply just to children and specify varying age cutoffs, typically 12 and under.

I think they are really looking at it the wrong way though.
