On March 18, 2020, the Director of the Alabama Department of Labor (ADOL) Workers’ Compensation Division, Steve Garrett, released a Memorandum concerning the Ombudsman Program. ADOL Ombudsmen travel the state and assist with finalizing settlements and also act as mediators at no cost to the parties. Per the Memorandum, the ADOL is constantly monitoring the ongoing developments of COVID-19 and the effect it’s having on the ADOL and the services it provides. Although the Ombudsman Program is continuing to operate, the ADOL is making the following modifications to the procedures normally in place.
To reschedule mediation dates or to alter plans for scheduled mediations during this time, it is asked that you contact your ombudsman. For a list of ombudsman with contact information and the areas of the state that they cover, please e-mail me at email@example.com and I will be happy to send you one.
