PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
LABOR AND INDUSTRIES
[Filed July 19, 2022, 8:35 a.m.]
The department of labor and industries (L&I) is withdrawing the CR-101 Preproposal statement of inquiry regarding post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) presumption of occupational disease filed on August 21, 2018, and published under WSR 18-17-151.
We are withdrawing the CR-101 for PTSD filed in 2018 because SHB 2758, passed by the Washington state legislature in 2020, again amended RCW 51.08.142
by adding public safety telecommunicators to the list of job classes where PTSD may be considered as an occupational disease. Rather than have two separate rulings, one rule making for a PTSD presumption of occupational disease and another for PTSD as an occupational disease without presumption, we will combine and explain both in one rule making.
If you have any questions, please contact Tracy West, rules coordinator, at 360-902-6954.
