Revised Guidelines for In-Person Deputy Commissioner Hearings

By Barry Jennings

The North Carolina Industrial Commission has recently revised its guidelines for In-Person Deputy Commissioner Hearings. Those guidelines can be found here. The revisions came after Chief Justice Beasley’s July 16, 2020, Order and Emergency Directive 21 related to face coverings in courthouses. The Emergency Directive requires all persons in a court facility to wear a face covering except in special circumstances. Please review these guidelines in detail if you have an upcoming In-Person Deputy Commissioner Hearing.
