ISSUE: Director, Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act

Congratulations to Miranda Chiu.  She has just been officially appointed the Director, Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation, Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, in the U.S. Department of Labor.  Miranda has been serving as Acting Director since the retirement of Mike Niss, and this announcement makes it official.

I worked with Miranda at DOL for years.  She is a no nonsense hard worker, and DOL could not have done better.  Based on my personal experience, she is very well qualified for and very deserving of this appointment.

On the down side, Carl Abildso in the Longshore Division’s National Office has just retired.  Anyone who’s ever paid a Special Fund assessment bill or put a case into the Special Fund knows Carl.  He’ll be missed, and I wish Carl a long and happy retirement.
