Administrative Procedure: Notice

Hoff v. UEF and Laubach & Laubach [11/1/00] 2000 MTWCC 67 Procedural due process requires the Department of Labor and Industry to provide the employer, insurer, and/or UEF, as the case may be, with written notice of its determination waiving the one-year limitations period so that those affected parties have an opportunity to request a hearing. Moreover, for the Department's determination to garner any respect, notice should be given to all interested parties prior to any determination.

Baxter v. UEF [9/20/00] 2000 MTWCC 65 Failure of Workers' Compensation Assistance Bureau to give employer and Uninsured Employers' Fund notice of claimant's application for waiver of one-year limitation period and action granting waiver raise grave due process concerns.
