Rule 1.2 Amendments and Construction.

The Rules of the Commission are subject to amendment at any time, and the Commission will adopt additional Rules as needed.

All references in these Rules to the "Law" or to the "Act" refer to the most current provisions of the Mississippi Workers' Compensation Law, Miss. Code Ann. 71-3-1 et seq. (1972, as amended), unless otherwise provided.

All references to "Commission" shall not include and apply to any Administrative Judge of this Commission, unless otherwise provided.

These Rules shall be in effect and shall apply to all claims or matters pending before the Commission as of the effective date of the Rules, and to all matters or claims thereafter filed.

If the Commission, an Administrative Judge, or any court of competent jurisdiction finds that any provision of these Rules conflicts with any provision of the Mississippi Workers' Compensation Law, the provision of the Law shall control.

This Rule shall be in force and effect on and after January 18, 2018.
