Alternative Dispute Resolution

Judge Janice Askin
Division Director

The ADR section's goal is to provide the workers' compensation system with an expeditious and efficient alternative to litigation for the resolution of disputes.  To this end, by filing a Form WC-100 or Form WC-14, any party to a claim may request a mediation to resolve their disputes.  Most mediations conducted at the Board involve settlement mediations.

The ADR section currently has 7 full time mediators and 2 administrative law judges conducting mediations daily in Atlanta and in 15 locations across the State of Georgia. 
 
The ADR section also handles motions when a hearing has not been previously requested, attorney fee contract approvals-via Form WC-108(a), and other requests.

For more information about either mediations or ADR's motion practice, see the ADR monthly calendars or contact us at (404) 656-2939 or email us at askinj@sbwc.ga.gov.
