Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission to Remain Closed Through April 17, 2020, with Hearings Conducted Telephonically
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 through April 17, 2020, the Offices of the Commission will not be open to the public. While they understand that this may be an inconvenience, they are adhering to recommendations by the MDOH in an effort to promote public health.
All settlements are to be mailed in or filed through ATOS, with all signatures required present. All Commission hearings scheduled will be on the record from now until April 1, 2020. As much as reasonable, Administrative Judge hearings will be conducted telephonically. In the event that an Administrative Judge hearing requires to be in person, all hearings will take place in Hearing Room C to provide ample distance between parties and Commission staff. There will be no admittance to the building without an appointment at the request of the Commission or an Administrative Judge.
