Also, new DWC policy (coming, we’re told, from the Chief Docketing Clerk) is for Benefit Review Officers to set disputes for CCH within 60 days of the BRC regardless of whether the participants can be available on the selected date.  So, if there is only one slot available within two months of the BRC and one or both parties cannot attend, it will be set anyway. The conflicted party is advised to request a continuance. How this outcome differs substantively from just setting the thing outside of 60 days to begin with is anyone’s guess.  We chalk it up to DWC-logic.
