In early October, the Hazleton Workers’ Compensation Office of Adjudication, located in Hazle Township, was closed by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. According to the deputy press secretary for the department, the closing was done in an effort to balance workloads and assure more efficient adjudication.
As of the close of business on October 11, the office has been permanently closed. Cases will be heard in either the Wilkes-Barre, Pottsville, or Bloomsburg offices. Injured workers who previously went to the Hazleton office should direct any questions to the Pottsville Workers’ Compensation Office of Adjudication at:
112 South Claude A. Lord Blvd.
