During this extraordinary time, the attorneys at Tremont Sheldon P.C. are continuing to handle your Workers’ Compensation matters. There have been temporary changes to the way WC claims are handled by the WCC.
In response to the ongoing Covid-19 health crisis and the Governor’s directive to “work at home, stay at home,” the offices of the Workers’ Compensation Commission have been closed to the public since March 24, 2020. The WCC has also made significant staff reductions. Still, the WCC remains open and is conducting business. All Commissioners remain fully employed and are conducting formal and informal hearings telephonically. Respondent’s and Commissioner’s medical examinations may be conducted remotely at the discretion of the physician. Documents may now be filed by standard mail delivery services or facsimile instead of by certified mail.
