The Academy Of Magical Arts; Compwest; Icw, Luis Leonel Lopez Vargas WORKERS’ COMPENSATION APPEALS BOARDSTATE OF CALIFORNIALUIS LEONEL LOPEZ VARGAS,Applicant,vs.THE ACADEMY OF MAGICAL ARTS;COMPWEST; ICW,DefendantsCase No. ADJ9803711(Anaheim District Office)OPINION AND ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR RECONSIDERATION            We have considered the allegations of the Petition for Reconsideration and the contents of the report of the workers’ compensation administrative law judge (WCJ) with respect thereto. Based on our review of the record, the petition is untimely and must be dismissed.            There are 25 days allowed within which to file a petition for reconsideration from a “final” decision that has been served by mail upon an address in California. (Lab. Code, §§ 5900(a), 5903; Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, § 10507(a)(1 ).) This time limit is extended to the next business day if the last day for filing falls on a weekend or holiday. (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, § 10508.) To be timely, however, a petition for reconsideration must be filed with (i.e., received by) the WCAB within the time allowed; proof that the petition was mailed (posted) within that period is insufficient. (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, §§ 10845(a), 10392(a).)            This time limit is jurisdictional and, therefore, the Appeals Board has no authority to consider or act upon an untimely petition for reconsideration. (Maranian v. Workers’ Comp. Appeals Bd. (2000) 81 Cal.App.4th 1068, 1076 [65 CaI.Comp.Cases 650, 656]; Rymer v. Hagler (1989) 211 Cal.App.3d 1171, 1182; Scott v Workers’ Comp. Appeals Bd. (1981) 122 Cal.App.3d 979, 984 [ 46 Cal.Comp.Cases 1008, 1011]; US. Pipe & Foundry C . v. Industrial Acc. Com. (Hinojoza) (1962) 201 Cal.App.2d 545, 549 [27 Cal.Comp.Cases 73, 75-76].) ,             In this case, the WCJ issued a Minute Order on February 2, 2017. Based on the authority cited above, lien claimant had until Thursday, February 28, 2017 to file for reconsideration on a timely basis. Howeve
