As part of the Commission’s five year rule review, it is proposing amendments to Ohio Admin. Code 4121-3-16 Motions, 4121-3-22 Inspection of claim files, and 4121-3-30 Emergency Hearings. The proposed amendment to 4121-3-16 removes a requirement that motions contain citations to legal authority. The proposed amendment to 4121-3-22 removes procedural steps addressing in-person inspection of claim files, which are practically obsolete since the Commission has adopted a paperless recordkeeping system. The proposed amendment to 4121-3-30 requires the hearing administrator to contact parties and attempt to find a mutually agreeable date and time for emergency hearings before scheduling such hearings on the docket.
