The Iowa Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) is not scheduling hearings during the transition to the Workers' Compensation Electronic System (WCES).
Electronic filing (eFiling) on WCES is now mandatory. But the online hearing request feature will not go live until a later date.
The DWC must manually transition all previously scheduled hearings into WCES before the online hearing request feature can go live. In order to streamline this process, the DWC is not accepting hearing requests at this time.
The DWC will provide notice when the hearing request feature on WCES is functional.
Please wait to submit any hearing requests until the WCES hearing request function is live.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation during this period of transition.
