Baltimore LHWCA cases moving to Norfolk

Posted on June 27th, 2012

On June 25, 2012, the U.S. Department of Labor's National Longshore Division Office issued Industry Notice 139 stating that effective July 1, 2012, all open cases (with noted exceptions) for claimants living in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and West Virginia, will be tranferred from the Baltimore MD Longshore District Office to the Norfolk VA Longshore District Office.

We suspect this is a belt-tightening move by the DOL to consolidate cases in a higher volume district. This only applies to cases pending at the OWCP level.

The complete industry notice can be viewed using the link below:
