Jefferson City, MO (WorkersCompensation.com) - In the interest of your health and safety, and that of employees at the Division of Workers’ Compensation, please note: 

ALL IN PERSON docket settings/trials are canceled through April 17, 2020 

You MAY NOT meet clients and attorneys at DWC offices to handle routine matters, instead please contact clients, other parties, and the Division electronically. See the options below. 

Upon request of all parties to a case, a tele-conference with an Administrative Law Judge may be scheduled to discuss your case. Attorneys will decide who will initiate the conference call to include all parties and the Judge. Please submit in advance any documents to review – electronically – to all parties and the Division. 

Routine matters can be handled by email and tele-conference: See the local office docketing email chart on the DWC website and below to submit Requests for tele-conferences, mediations, hardship hearings, final hearings, settlements, subpoenas, continuance, entries of appearance and withdrawal, dismissals, and other matters.   

Settlements: In most cases, a settlement agreement or Stipulation for Compromise Settlement form can be submitted for an Administrative Law Judge to consider, using the local office docketing email below.
