Ithaca’s Workers’ Compensation hearing location is slated to close January 15, 2009. The closing of hearing locations and the implementation of new forms and the so-called “rocket docket” create new hardships for claimants. The closing will leave claimants traveling to other locations for hearings.

Elmira will be the closest hearing location for many. The Elmira location is gearing up for renovations to accommodate the influx of new cases.

Route 13 between Elmira and Ithaca can be a bear in the wintertime and winter is just around the corner. Please contact your attorney and see if the hearing can be handled by telephone. If not, please drive safely.
