INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION OF JOINT CERTIFICATION OF READINESS 1. Certification of readiness by the parties is not mandatory but is encouraged. 2. Any party may initiate the certification, but all parties must join in one certification. 3. Certification will facilitate, but will not guarantee, an earlier hearing date. 4. The Worker's Compensation Division will attempt to schedule the hearing at a location no more than 100 miles from the address of the employee or the employer. 5. Only matters that will be ready for hearing on short notice (30 days) should be submitted for consideration for a short-notice hearing. 6. No certification should be submitted if any party believes that further impleader or joinder of parties is a possibility. 7. No postponements will be granted except under extraordinary circumstances. Difficulty in gathering medical proof IS NOT an extraordinary circumstance. 8. If the Worker's Compensation Division approves the joint certification, a hearing may be scheduled on relatively short notice. The Worker's Compensation Division will notify the parties if the request is not approved. 9. Only the issues listed on the joint certification form will be heard at the scheduled hearing. 10. Unless waived by the parties, statutory filing deadlines apply. The parties are encouraged to file and exchange medical and vocational proof with the Joint Certification. 11. In addition to the dates of unavailability for the attorneys provided on this form, the attorneys should continue to notify the Calendar Section of any future dates of unavailability. PLEASE NOTE: The submission of a Joint Certification by the parties is a representation that the matter is ready for hearing on relatively short notice. This will afford the Calendar Section a number of claims that may be scheduled without the risk that a party might request an adjournment. The Joint Certification will provide the parties input into the scheduling of hearings. Those attorneys and parties that cooperate in the process of preparing a file for hearing will be afforded some priority in scheduling, thus achieving earlier resolution of their matters. The process of submitting a Joint Certification is expected to encourage settlement discussions, resulting in earlier case resolution. American LegalNet, Inc.
