As many in the workers' compensation community are aware, legislation passed into law during the 2000 Legislative Session granting the Workers' Compensation Commission the authority to establish regional hearing sites and to conduct hearings at those sites. This important ruling will enable the MD WCC to efficiently utilize its resources to provide a more timely and effective adjudication process.
These sites will be strategically located throughout Maryland. The consolidation of several locations will be accomplished in phases. In some cases temporary facilities will be secured in order to accommodate those areas where the need is most urgent.
Beginning January 2001 those counties served by the Cambridge, Salisbury, Denton and Centreville sites will be relocated to Cambridge (see below). Counties served by the LaPlata, Prince Frederick and Leonardtown sites will move to Waldorf (see below).
We appreciate the support and patience of the workers' compensation community as we implement this important program and will post the progress here on our web page.
