This division is responsible for reviewing, preparing case summaries, and assigning all contested claims for either an informal conference or hearing.
Informal Conferences Schedule
Informal Conferences are conducted telephonically and scheduled in the order received by the Commission.
An injured worker may request a hearing by filing a Form 50 (PDF), 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 (PDF), 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 (PDF), Employer's Request for Hearing, and paying a $50 filing fee.
