After extensive rulemaking procedures, the Idaho Industrial Commission has adopted new Judicial Rules Of Practice And Procedure. These are the rules that govern the hearing process before the Idaho Industrial Commission and are important to both attorneys and injured workers.
This revision included a great many changes. A copy of these new rules may be obtained at the Idaho Industrial Commission’s website or downloaded at http://www.iic.idaho.gov/disputed_claims/jrp_13.pdf
While many of the rules are technical and would be of interest only to attorneys, they do provide an understanding of the procedures and rules that one might face in a disputed workers’ compensation case in Idaho.
