Worker's Compensation Court

Workers' Compensation Court

Welcome to the homepage of the Workers' Compensation Court. The court has been given the responsibility to hear and decide all disputes between an injured employee and an employer relating to workers' compensation benefits.

The court was created by the General Assembly in 1991 as part of a reform of the entire compensation system. The responsibility of the court is to create a fair and efficient system to get weekly benefits to a deserving employee and to discontinue those benefits when the employee is no longer disabled. The court created forms and procedures which allow the litigants to bring cases to the court without great expense or paperwork. We like to think that our court was "user friendly" before the term was even coined.
