OhioBWC - Basics:  What is due process?

What is due process?

Due process must be provided when the legal rights of the injured worker or employer are affected. All parties must be given timely and appropriate notice of the decision and provided an opportunity to raise issues in an appropriate manner. BWC provides due process by:

  • Notifying all parties of an action being requested;
  • Allowing the parties the opportunity to submit additional information supporting their position;
  • Notifying all parties of the decision in response to the request for action or services;
  • Allowing parties the opportunity to appeal in an appropriate forum, such as an IC hearing.
