COVID-19: IOWA COMMISSIONER, JOSEPH CORTESE, POSTPONES IN-PERSON HEARINGS UNTIL NOVEMBER 20, 2020
For example, as part of the order that has been renewed several times now, all in-person hearings scheduled to take place between September 15, 2020 and November 20, 2020, will automatically be set to take place over CourtCall (an internet-video based system) at their previously scheduled time. CourtCall is paid for by the Iowa Division of Workers’ Compensation, but witnesses and those wishing to observe the hearings must be prepared to use the system to attend.
COVID-19 has had far reaching implications in the Iowa Workers’ Compensation field. For information on how the order will specifically impact your case, please contact Paul Barta or Micah Hawker-Boehnke at 402-475-1075.
