Hearings

What can I expect at my Hearing? 

An injured worker may request a hearing by filing a Form 50, Employee's Request for a Hearing, unless the issues involve temporary benefits terminated by the employer within 150 days after notice of the accident. In such cases, the injured worker can request a hearing by filing Form 15, Part III of the Temporary Compensation Report.   A hearing is granted within 60 days of the request.  Please be aware that there is a $50 filing fee each for Form 50 and Form 15.

An employer can request a hearing by filing Form 21, Employer's Request for Hearing, and paying a $50 filing fee.
