Amendment of Ohio Administrative Code 4121-3-09-Regarding Change to Waiver Requirement

The Industrial Commission recently amended Ohio Administrative Code 4121-3-09, which will result in removing the requirement that parties waive the right to appear in-person for hearings. Effective July 20, 2023, parties and representatives may elect to attend hearings in-person, by telephone, or via WebEx and will not need to waive the right to appear in-person. The Industrial Commission is in the process of making the necessary changes to notices and orders to reflect this change.
