I would note that AB 2337 would not just allow injured workers but all parties in workers’ compensation proceedings to sign documents electronically.

This is a simple fix to a rather silly rule. Currently, we are required to sign settlement documents with a "wet" signature. We are then required to scan and file the settlement documents electronically. That means the judge never sees a "wet" signature. It is transformed into an electronic signature.
In the current world of online communication and a WCAB that operates electronically, it only makes sense to allow electronic signatures on settlement documents.

Electronic signature technology worked throughout the pandemic and for several years afterwards. It would helpful to injured workers if we can get rid of the inconsistencies of where we can use electronic signatures and where we cannot. Using electronic signatures has been a godsend for many of my clients that are unhoused, in transition between addresses, whose only lifeline is their phone/Internet, clients who have moved out of state, or have ambulatory/transportation difficulties. Bankruptcy, family, superior courts all allow electronic signatures.
