(a) when an employer and an aggrieved worker or, in the event of a lethal violation, the legal representative or salaried worker obtain a compensation agreement on a date that occurs at the earliest after the expiry of the waiting period, this agreement is submitted in writing by the employer to the delegate by the employer, with a statement on the date, place and nature of the injury on which it is based; If the Commissioner finds that such an agreement is fully in line with the provisions of this chapter, the Commissioner approves it. A copy of the agreement, with the Commissioner`s declaration of approval, will be served on each of the parties and will then be binding on both parties, as well as a distinction by the delegate. The delegate`s declaration of authorization also informs the worker of the rights that the person has on the annual cost of living adjustment or on participation in a rehabilitation program managed by the Service of Aging services and disability care in accordance with the provisions of this chapter. The delegate retains the original agreement in the Commissioner`s office, with the Commissioner`s consent, and, if an application for execution is made to the Supreme Court, the agent, at the request of that court, presents the court with a certified copy of the agreement and declaration of authorization.

Your private health insurance is legally obliged to pay for medical care denied by workers` compensation. Ultimately, a voluntary agreement is a legal document. This makes it difficult to change after approval. It is therefore essential to ensure that the voluntary agreement is correct in all respects and does not result in the short-circuiting of a worker, since the voluntary agreement contains an erroneous rate of pay or a lower mark-up than is permitted by law.
