WAC 182-526-0540 Correction of clerical errors in an initial order.
Effective March 16, 2017
- A clerical error is a mistake that does not change the intent of the initial order.
- The administrative law judge (ALJ) may correct clerical errors in the initial order by entering a corrected initial order. The ALJ may correct clerical errors in response to a request by one of the parties.
- Some examples of clerical error are:
- Missing or incorrect words or numbers;
- Dates inconsistent with the decision or evidence in the record such as using May 3, 2004, instead of May 3, 2014; or
- Math errors when adding the total of an overpayment.
- If the ALJ does not agree that the initial order contains one or more clerical errors, the ALJ enters a written order denying the request for a corrected order.
