     Coronavirus Impact on Hearings
In order to protect public health and OAH staff, these temporary changes to our normal procedures are in effect: 
  • All OAH offices are closed to the public until further notice. OAH will not conduct in-person hearings or accept in-person filing.
  • Filing case documents by secure email is allowed. Click Manage My Case to learn how to manage files electronically.
  • Until further notice, OAH is not holding in-person hearings. All hearings will be held by telephone or video conference, if possible.
  • If you prefer an in-person hearing, you can request that your hearing be rescheduled until after in-person hearings resume. The administrative law judge will decide if your hearing can be rescheduled. 
  • OAH staff will contact you to change or reschedule your hearing, if needed.
