The Workers' Compensation Appeals Board will hold oral arguments tomorrow by video conference. Since the pandemic, arguments have been held by phone but the board says the video platform will “enhance the quality of the arguments for everyone to see each other’s facial expressions and body language as well as hear the intonation of their voices.” See the docket here. In addition, the board announced that new rules governing the appeals process for both interlocutory appeals and compensation order appeals went into effect Monday. The rules do not revise deadlines or make other significant substantive changes, but now incorporate the board’s former Practices and Procedures into the administrative rules.
