This might seem obvious, but its incredibly important to show up at Industrial Commission hearings. If you have a hearing before the Industrial Commission you’ll receive a notice in the mail. I’ve attached an example of a notice with our client’s information redacted. If you notice the highlighted section says, “You Are Urged To Be Present.”
You might take this to mean, “we’ll I’m urged, but not ordered to be present, so my presence is optional.” It might says this but you should always show up. for your own sake and the success of whatever you are trying to achieve at the hearing, your presence is absolutely mandatory.
