Changes to Request for Hearing and
Response to Issues Forms
WCB has made some modifications
to its Request for Hearing and Response
to Issues forms. Most are format changes. We also have added a line on the forms for
the party/representative to advise if an interpreter will be needed and for which language.
Please destroy the old versions
of the Request for Hearing and Response to Issues forms. You can access the new forms on
WCB's website at www.wcb.oregon.gov/pdf_file/eform.htm.
It is available in both PDF and WORD formats. If you choose to create your own forms, please
make sure they include all the information on the above-referenced revised forms. Regarding
the last bullet item ("consolidation") on the Request for Hearing form:
WCB's administrative staff receives
many Requests for Hearing that have both "yes" boxes or both "no"
boxes marked. Such conflicting requests cannot be accommodated; when this happens WCB's staff
will consolidate the new Request for Hearing with the pending case.
- If you want the Request for Hearing that is being filed to have a different
WCB case number and hearing date from a pending case involving the same claim or claimant,
you should check the "no" box following the consolidation bullet item.
- If you want the Request for Hearing that is being filed to be consolidated with
a pending case (i.e., not scheduled for a different hearing date), you should
check the "yes" box following the consolidation bullet item and list the WCB
