ICAO Administrative Law Judges
The Industrial Claim Appeals Panel is comprised of five Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) with at least six years of experience in the practice of law, which includes significant experience in Workers Compensation and/or Unemployment Insurance law. Decisions of the Panel are considered by at least two Panel members. The Panel does not hold hearings, but rather reviews the record created at the hearing held before the Workers Compensation ALJs or the Unemployment Insurance Hearing Officers. The Panel issues a written decision that is mailed to all parties.
After graduating from the University of Kansas law school in 1977, Judge Socolofsky worked as a prosecutor. He has worked for the Colorado Department of Labor since 1987, initially as an Unemployment Insurance Hearing Officer and since 1994 as administrative law judge for the Industrial Claim Appeals Office.
