Dispute Resolution (Mediation)

The Dispute Resolution Section performs the statutorily required process for resolving workers’ compensation benefit disputes prior to filing with the Workers’ Compensation Court (WCC). Parties in dispute meet with impartial mediators in a confidential, nonbinding conference to find resolution. Conference results range from complete resolution/agreement between the parties to negotiated settlement of the claim. If the process is not successful in resolving the issues, a written recommendation is provided. The parties are then free to pursue the matter at the Workers' Compensation Court.
