Notes of Decisions
It is a violation of Section 412 of the Pennsylvania Workmens Compensation Act and 34 Pa. Code § 121.20 to make commutation payments of more than 25 weeks without Department approval and the case would be remanded to the Board for determination of the question of the penalty since the Board could have imposed a penalty if it had been proceeding on the basis that there was a violation as a matter of law. Department of Labor and Industry v. Workmens Compensation Appeal Board (Taylor Lock Co.), 410 A.2d 1325 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1980).
