New York State is to resume In-person hearings at the Workers' Compensation Board on or after 10/7/24! Although the WCB has decided to reopen its hearing points for In-person hearings, it will continue to allow virtual attendance. In-person attendance is strictly voluntary. It remains to be seen how the reopening will be laid out across the state. It is also an unknown regarding whether claimants and attorneys will choose to attend hearings in-person. 

New York State workers' compensation hearings have been held exclusively via the Board's virtual hearing system since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
