The Hearing

Before the Hearing

If you have any evidence or documents you would like to use, you must provide copies to all interested parties listed in your hearing packet before the date of the hearing. Additionally, be sure to thoroughly read the hearing packet.

Register for the Hearing in Advance

You must register for the hearing at least 24 hours before the scheduled date and time so that the hearing officer can call you at the time and date of the scheduled hearing. To register, call 303-823-4943 or 1-800-376-0835. You will need the Docket ID number in the upper-right corner of your hearing notice. If you are the appealing party and you do not register at least 24 hours before your hearing or if you do not answer your phone when the hearing officer calls you, your appeal will be dismissed. If you are not the appealing party, the hearing will proceed without you. 

Hearing Process  

Hearings begin at the same time stated on the Notice of Hearing and typically last about an hour. If you are participating in person, arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you have enough time to check in for the hearing. 
Review the information in the hearing packet before the hearing and be sure to have it with you for the hearing. If you have witnesses, bring them with you or provide their names and telephone numbers to the hearing officer.
The hearing officer will explain the hearing process and the issues to be discussed in the hearing. The hearing officer will also question the parties and witnesses. You may question the other parties and they may question you. After all testimony is taken, the hearing officer will conclude the hearing. More>


The hearing officer issues a written decision that is mailed as soon as possible to all interested parties. If you disagree with a hearing officer's decision, you may appeal that decision to the Industrial Claim Appeals Office.
