Alternative Dispute Resolution
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. By filing a Form WC-100 or Form WC-14, any party to a claim may request a mediation. Most mediations conducted at the Board involve settlement mediations.
The ADR section currently has 6 full time mediators and 3 administrative law judges conducting mediations daily in Atlanta and in 14 other locations across the State of Georgia.
The ADR section also handles motions and change of physician requests when a hearing has not been previously requested, attorney fee contract approvals-via Form WC-108(a), and other requests.
