Major Changes afoot at the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission
The Virginia Workers Compensation Commission (“VWCC”) has been pouring major resources into its electronic filing initiative and eliminating the Ombudsman’s Office. There is now a “Customer Assistance Department,” and training underway for personnel in Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”). Doug Landau visited this new department in November on order to familiarize himself with the new lineup and procedures. While most lawyers simply play “catch up” and read about the changes that significantly affect their clients’ rights, at ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. we actually go and see the changes afoot and meet with those charged with implementing the Commission’s new policies.
