The Allentown Workers’ Compensation Hearing Office has been located at 160 Hamilton Street, in Allentown, for several years now. We have just been advised by one of the Workers’ Compensation Judges (WCJ) at that office that the hearing location for Allentown will be moving shortly. The plan is for the move to take place in July, 2011. We are told the new location will be closer to the Allentown exit, off of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
As we have discussed in previous blog entries, in PA, a workers’ compensation hearing is typically held in the County in which the injured worker resides. We will provide more information, including the new address, when we are advised by the PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
