Procedural Rule 2.8 General Rules of Evidence Relaxed.

In compensation hearings the general rules of evidence shall be relaxed to permit the introduction of any relevant and competent evidence. On motion of a party or Administrative Judge, the Administrative Judge may exclude any matters that are libelous or personal which do not have a direct bearing on the claim. All other matters which are accepted by the Administrative Judge over the objection of either party shall become a part of the record with the objection properly shown.

This Rule shall be in force and effect on and after January 18, 2018.
