2.Whether WSI correctly interpreted the extent of ICI's notice obligations to its employees regarding the required use of its preferred medical provider, pursuant to N.D.C.C.  65-05-28.2(5)?
3.Whether the weight of the evidence from the entire record supported WSI's determination that ICI's worksite postings at the Leland Olds power plant regarding the required use of its preferred medical provider failed to comply with N.D.C.C.  65-05-28.2(5), therefore invalidating its preferred provider selection as to Francis Rogstad?
