DOL/OWCP RIN: 1240-AA17 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Civil Monetary Penalties Procedures 

The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Longshore Act’s extensions. The Longshore Act sets out monetary penalties that OWCP may assess against Longshore employers or their insurance carriers when they fail to timely file certain reports or falsify those reports, or when employers discriminate against employees for exercising their rights under the Act. 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. OWCP had previously included this topic in RIN 1240-AA13 but has since decided to propose these rules in a separate NPRM.
