Title: Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Electronic Filing, Settlement, and Civil Money Penalty Procedures 

OWCP administers the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Longshore Act’s extensions.  To modernize and speed claims processing, OWCP will propose revising its existing regulations to require parties to file documents electronically, unless otherwise required by statute or allowed by OWCP, and to streamline the settlement process.  Additionally, in order to promote accountability and ensure fairness, OWCP will propose new rules for imposing and reviewing civil money penalties prescribed by the Longshore Act. The new rules will set forth the procedures to contest OWCP’s determinations.
