Administrative Hearings

The administrative litigation process begins when the Commission sets a proceeding for hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). The Chief Administrative Law Judge assigns a presiding judge and sets a hearing schedule.


As an alternative to litigation, the Commission may also provide participants with the opportunity to resolve conflicts through settlement. Settlement proceedings conducted before an ALJ allows the participants to maintain more control over the process to find a mutually acceptable outcome. Under the Commission's rules of practice and procedure, Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) act as settlement judges, mediators, facilitators, and arbitrators.
