Alabama Department of Labor Needs to Know the County Where the Benefit Review Conference Occurred

Regardless of whether a workers’ compensation settlement is finalized before a Circuit Court Judge or an ADOL Ombudsman, the ADOL Workers’ Compensation Division, must receive a completed WC-4 Claim Summary Form that identifies the county where the settlement was finalized. This is a non-issue for court approved documents since they always reflect the county of filing. However, for ombudsman settlements it is also required that the county be reflected on the WC-4.

Forms are to be sent to:

Earlene Holland:

Phone or FAX 334-956-4031

Christine Dunn:
