Reiteration/Clarification (of August 8, 2003 Notice)
The Commission no longer accepts "counsel of record" for a specific employer/insurer.  An attorney must enter his/her appearance in each individual case.

In addition, the Commission is no longer entering the claimant's attorney based on the information provided on the claim form (C-1).  The claim must be accompanied by a Request to Enter Appearance of Counsel form (C-24R 9/03).  The Employee Claim Form C-1 is in the process of revision and the attorney information fields will be removed  from the form.
