A few months ago, we learned that the Northeast Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Hearing Office would be closing shortly. We were advised that all hearings for Philadelphia would then be held at the Center City Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Hearing Office located at 110 North 8th Street.
Today, I had a hearing in Northeast Philadelphia and learned that today was the last day of hearings for this office. When hearings resume, after the New Years holiday, this office will be closed.
We are saddened with this development, as we know folks who live in Northeast Philadelphia have no great desire to venture into Center City Philadelphia unless it is absolutely necessary. As you are crawling along on I-95, journeying to your hearing, know that we are stuck in the same traffic, feeling your pain!
