Industrial Commission of Ohio Announces In-Person Hearings

By: Mark Barnes

On June 14, 2021, the Industrial Commission announced it will resume conducting in-person workers’ compensation hearings on July 6, 2021.  However, parties and their representatives have the option to appear and participate by Webex.  It is unclear from the Commission’s website whether in-person attendance at hearings will become mandatory and how the Commission will address hearings requiring interpreters.  Once the Commission finalizes its position on hearing participation, one can expect the Commission to modify Ohio Admin. Code 4121-3-09, which governs hearing procedures before the Industrial Commission and its hearing officers.  We will provide updates to this story as new information becomes available.
