About the Author
Former New York State Workers Compensation Board Commissioner Michael T. Berns (1996-2008) was on the Board when these Section 32 settlement agreements first started to appear. He not only approved more Section 32 agreements than any of his colleagues but also worked with both claimant and carrier representatives to draft a standardized agreement. Currently Berns is the publisher and editor of InsideWorkersCompNY.com, a website which reviews court decision and new relating to workers compensation issues as well as detailing information about key members of the Board’s staff. Berns also published commentaries and polls covering legal decisions and Board procedures and is the only independent voice opening up the Board’s practices to the public. In 2008 Berns published “Behind The Closed Doors - An insider’s look at how things really work at the NYS Workers Compensation Board and how to fix them.” Prior to being appointed to the Board in 1996 by Governor George Pataki, Berns served as the chief executive of several firms involved in the international distribution of American manufactured products where he was primarily responsible for establishing distribution and manufacturing facilities throughout the world. Berns has also served as an officer of, or on the board of, companies ranging from real estate to manufacturing, and as a director of a number community based organizations. A member of the cast of Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera for 18 seasons, Berns has also published articles on real estate and computer programming. Berns graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in Economics, and completed additional studies as an undergraduate at the Universidad Nacional de Mexico in Mexico City and New York University as well as graduate studies at New York University's Stern School of Business. He currently lives in New York City with his wife and family.

(diploma'd in medicine):
of the same or similar specialty as the claimant's treating physician
then should not all 12 NYS WCB commissioners + 1 NYS WCB chair

'review (examine) and rescind' sitting NYS WCALJudges' decisions) be attorneys
